The NFRN has been made aware that North Yorkshire Trading Standards are currently carrying out test purchases for tobacco using  a tall boy or girl.   While a Citizencard may be presented as proof of age, members should be aware that it may be the 16+ and not the 18+ card that is presented.

Members may wish to remind staff that they should carefully check the validity of any ID offered and that ID should be checked before the gantry is opened or any tobacco products are retrieved.
