So my son is refused alcohol again at tescos, even though he ID'd he (he's 19).
This time they refused to sell rather than stole it off him after the sale, but it was close, they pressed a button to cancel the authorisation of the sale on their self service tills just before he put the money in. Yes, they have already authorised it...
However, it will happen again and chances are they will try and steal it off him after the sale again.
He is planned to wear a t-shirt with his name on it when he goes shopping at tescos in future. That way the surveillance video clearly identifies him and is subject to the Data Protection Act and he can request a copy!
