The operation was carried out in south east Sheffield.

Inspector Jason Booth said: “Not one sold alcohol to our volunteers, which is great news. We do these operations periodically to ensure premises are not selling alcohol to young people who then may get involved in crime or anti-social behaviour not to mention putting themselves at risk of harm.”
