A convenience store in the London borough of Croydon has been banned from selling alcohol after it was caught repeatedly breaching the terms of its licence by selling alcohol in the early hours of the morning.

Yarlpaady Supermarket, on London Road, had its licence revoked by Croydon Council at a sub-committee meeting on Monday.

The store, which used to be permitted to sell alcohol between 8am and 1am, was found to have served customers alcohol well past its permitted hours on multiple occasions between April and November 2017.

The Metropolitan Police had recommended that the local authority revoke the shop’s licence, submitting statements detailing four separate incidents when alcohol was seen to be sold after 1am, including an occasion when police were called to deal with an assault concerning two drunk men.

PC Zoe Garrod, who attended the assault, said in a statement that a member of the public had told police that alcohol was served “at all times”.
