Officers in Holyhead have confiscated a significant amount of alcohol in a bid to crackdown on under age drinking.

A large quantity of alcohol – including wine, cider and lager was seized on Saturday, 5th September from two 13-year-old's in the area.

She added: “North Wales Police are committed to tackling under age drinking and tackling anti-social behaviour or other type of crime associated with under age drinking.
