Online surgery hailed by police

OFFICERS have hailed an online advice surgery for High Peak pub landlords.

A large number of licensees logged in to the surgery which saw police offering advice on a number of issues including staff training and the law on serving alcohol to drunk people.

Licensing Sergeant Mark Wright, who led the event, said: “It was extremely encouraging to see licensees joining in the chat and asking us the questions that matter to them.

“The surgery was a great success and we will be holding them again in the not too distant future so I’d urge any licensees to log on and have their say.”
