WHAT should be the legal age for buying alcohol?
CIDER, lager and bitter were among the haul of alcohol taken from under-age drinkers in just one hour.
Officers on patrol in Fulwell and Seaburn confiscated more than 140 bottles and cans during a crackdown on antisocial behaviour.
They have pledged to continue to take a stand against illegal young boozers throughout the summer.
Some shops are trying to protect themselves against being caught out by underage drinkers who look older than they are by refusing to sell booze to anyone who looks under 21, 25 or even 30.
What age do you think is old enough to buy booze?
