Barnsley Bookies Clamp Down On Underage Gamblers

Wednesday September 24 2014




A BARNSLEY bookmaker is doing its bit to protect the town's youngsters from gambling - by checking more IDs.

Identification auditors Serve Legal visited every William Hill shop in the country with undercover teens.

In Barnsley, 87.1 per cent were asked for ID.

Andrew Lyman, of William Hill, said: "We're delighted by the latest findings. The staff in Barnsley are doing a very effective job in identifying possible underage visitors to our shops.

"We operate a 'Think 21' policy which means that a challenge should be made to any individual who, on any objective view, appears to be 21 or younger."
