Alcohol seized from drinking den
Dated: 20 Aug 2012
Police in Killingworth have called time on a drinking den in the town.
Officers found the den in a wooded area close to a track which runs along a Metro line from Benton Metro Station east of Granville Crescent.
Several bottles of cider, cans of lager and other drink were either seized from or poured out at the scene in front of the teenagers – girls and boys, aged between 13 and 18.
Because all the alcohol was disposed of from the den, the youngsters were given suitable advice at the scene.
