A CONCERNED mum wants to warn other unsuspecting parents after her daughter and her friends were able to buy and consume alcohol from a newsagents in the city despite being underage.

Anneli Norman said her 14-year-old daughter was 'left lying on the tarmac and vomiting uncontrollably' after drinking the vodka bought for her by a 17-year-old friend.

The teen was taken to hospital after her mother found her and called an ambulance.

Ms Norman, a support worker for children with autism, said: "She was a wreckage. When I got to her after being texted by one of her friends she couldn't stand or speak. She kept being sick. It was very frightening.

"I phoned the police and the ambulance, the kids were still outside the shop, I can't believe they were able to get the vodka and drink it until they were blackout drunk and vomiting outside, and nobody from the shop stepped in or tried to help.

"Thankfully when she got to hospital she didn't need her stomach pumped, she was allowed to sleep it off and come home with me after a few hours. I just can't stop thinking that it could have been so much worse. She could have choked on her own sick.

"I understand kids mucking about and we were all young once, but this has never happened before. I would like the shop to have their licence taken away, they shouldn't be serving people who are underage."

A spokesman for West Mercia Police has confirmed they were called in relation to this incident and their licensing team are currently looking into the matter.

A spokesperson for Worcestershire Trading Standards added: “Trading Standards works closely with partners to identify and target shops who we believe are selling age restricted products, including alcohol, to young people.

"We were unaware of this shocking incident and this particular business but we will now ensure that are targeted as part of our ongoing programme for enforcement action.”
