'Am I the only one?' shop owner on selling alcohol to children

A Newport newsagent could lose its licence over allegations it sold alcohol to 55 children aged as young as 11, who were then told to hide it from CCTV cameras.

Investigators claim a child was taken to hospital and found unconscious after drinking alcohol bought from B&J Newsagent in Chepstow Road.

Police also sent 103 letters to parents after children were drunk in a park.

Newport council is meeting and could suspend or revoke the shop's alcohol licence.

BBC Wales reporter Jordan Davies spoke to shop owner Jayesh Patel.
