Police officers tackling underage drinking in Bishop Auckland are warning parents not to supply alcohol.
Operation ARIES aims to cut underage drinking in the town and the latest initiative is to clamp down on adults buying alcohol for under 18s.
This week Durham Constabulary and those involved in ARIES attended Sainsbury’s at St. Helen Auckland where a warning stating "buying for an u18? It’s an offence" was spray painted at the entrance.
An advertising board is also displayed outside of the supermarket with the same message.
