A pub landlord in Llanarth recently escaped having his premises licence revoked due to a peculiar condition being imposed.
A breathalyser will now have to be used by a landlord to perform a breath test before allowing anyone under the age of 18 to enter his pub.
Whilst he avoided having his personal licence revoked, he received a fine of over £2,000 for allowing underage persons to drink on the premises and other offences relating to his CCTV system and door supervisors.
How does a breathalyser test work?
A breathalyser test works through testing infrared radiation wavelengths, as oxygen and ethanol pass through infrared radiation at different speeds, therefore giving a representation of how much alcohol is in the person’s system. You can read more on Wikipedia.
