A Tesco regular was refused a bottle of wine because he went in with his 17-year-old.

Karl Hall was also trying to buy chocolate at the Tesco Express branch, but staff said they had a reasonable suspicion he was buying alcohol for a child.

Karl, 48, says he was made to feel 'an inch tall' and 'like a criminal' in the confrontation with staff and later with the branch manager.

Yes, you can be in serious trouble for selling alcohol to an adult whom you are led to believe is buying it for a minor or passing it to a minor, however it has to be proved that it was reasonable for you to have that belief.  The defence is always that you had no reason(s) to have that belief.

It should also be remembered that legally parents can, in their own home, give their children alcohol to drink in the home .
