Four out of 49 Cumbria shops sell cigarettes to child

Four Cumbria retailers have been caught out selling cigarettes to a child.

The 15-year-old boy visited 49 shops and supermarkets in the north and west of the county, during half term and was sold tobacco four times.

He was sent to the shops by Cumbria Trading Standards which said it was pleased the majority of off-licences and shops, had passed the test.

But a spokesman warned traders the operation would be repeated again in the near future.
