A pub in Chesterfield is to close for 80 hours after they were caught selling alcohol to underage volunteers during a test purchase operation.

The Goldminers at Newbold sold booze to the teenagers for a second time in a three month period.

Derbyshire police and trading standards carried out the checks on Thursday, March 20, with the help of teenage volunteers, in Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire.

Several premises were visited and a total of three failed, including The Goldminers. £80 fixed penalty notices were issued to staff members at the two other premises who sold the alcohol.

The Goldminers will be closed for 80 hours from 4pm on Thursday, April 24, until 11.59pm on Sunday, April 27.

Test purchasing operations are carried out on regular occasions throughout the county and further operations will take place across the area.
