A mother in Cramlington has been fined for buying alcohol for children.
Through the Shopwatch scheme, officers had reports of a group of young people drinking in Seven Oaks Park on May 2.
Two girls and two boys, aged between 14 and 16, were spoken to and 20 bottles of beer were seized.
CCTV footage showed one child's parent buying alcohol for them. She was given an £80 fixed penalty notice.
