Online & home delivery sales?

Last year a report by Alcohol Concern Cymru said children are often able to access alcohol via home delivery services. It found 15% of the young people surveyed stated they had successfully bought alcohol online, and over two thirds found it “easy” to do so. The report also covered a South Wales Police test purchase operation, in which 15 year olds attempted to buy alcohol from major supermarket grocery websites. In 44% of the test cases, alcohol was delivered to the test purchasers in person with no proof of age requested. However no further information in this area seems to be available since the report.
In 2012 Serve Legal and Plymouth University jointly published a report warning against both online and proxy sales as the emerging battleground for underage sales. Yet over the last five years, prosecutions for both underage sales and proxy purchases have been falling. Could it be time for more action in these areas?
