Magherafelt parents warned over dropping kids off at licenced premises


Parents in Magherafelt have been warned not to drop their kids off at licenced premises.

Sergeant, Sam Young said: “We have had a number of occasions where parents are dropping their children off at what they believe to be Under 18 events on licensed premises.

“These premises can never be designated for use for under 18 events and there are very specific times and occasions when children are allowed on licensed premises, under 18 discos never meet these criteria.

“Where my team become aware of any such event they will be seeking to advise parents dropping off their children that they will not be permitted entry and should be taken away from that location.

The police officer added: “This is a safety issue and is about protecting young people.”
