Any CCTV footage shall be kept for at least 28 days and be available to the Licensing Authority or a Responsible Authority on request.


2.    That an appropriate proof of age policy, incorporating the principles of the “Challenge 25” Campaign be implemented; incorporating measures to ensure that any patron wishing to purchase alcohol who may reasonably appear to be under 25 years of age are asked to prove that they are at least 18 years old by displaying evidence of their identity and age in the form of a valid UK passport, new style driving licence displaying their photograph or PASS identification.
