A COUNCIL has refused the transfer of an alcohol licence from one brother to another after staff at the shop were caught selling alcohol to a child.

A COUNCIL has refused the transfer of an alcohol licence from one brother to another after staff at the shop were caught selling alcohol to a child.

Maqbool Ahmed, 42, said he is not going to appeal the decision by Bexley council's Licensing Sub Committee to vary the licence of his brother's shop, Euro Food and Wine, 117 Station Road, Sidcup, on August 6. Mr Ahmed, 42, who works at the shop full-time, applied to have the alcohol licence transferred to his name and become the 'premises supervisor' but the committee refused saying the shop sold alcohol to a child.

Mr Ahmed said: "The decision was not fair. I have worked there for a year and I am very careful. People have been buying alcohol and giving it to the kids. The time they caught a child with alcohol was when I went to see my doctor.

I wouldn't sell alcohol to a child as it is like giving my own child alcohol."

A spokesperson for Bexley council said: "The premises are situated where sales to children and alcohol related disorder are a particular problem.
