A Welling business owner has been fined for illegally selling a sunbed session to a 16-year-old girl.

Donna Nails and Tanning in Welling High Street admitted two charges of flouting regulations which prohibit sunbed businesses from letting under 18s use their sunbeds.

Defendant Huong Thi Thanh Nguyen, 38, of Heath Road, Crayford, did not appear in court but was represented by her solicitor, who admitted on her behalf letting the youngster into the restricted sunbed zone and to selling a sunbed session to a minor.

Bexley magistrates fined the defendant £1,500, and ordered her to pay £1,000 in costs and a £150 victim surcharge at a hearing on May 8.

Following the trial, a council spokesperson said: “We take any breach of legislation designed to protect the health of minors extremely seriously and its Trading Standards team will continue to crack down on businesses found to be flouting such legislation.”
