A shop in Harlesden that kept its licence after it was caught selling fake alcohol has had it revoked for allegedly selling banned high strength beers.
Alric Food & Wine in Alric Avenue, is claimed to have continued selling beers such as Dragon Stout and Guinness Foreign Extra which are all above the 5.5 per cent strength they were allowed to stock.
A damning police report also claimed the shop sold single cans of beers of customers and allowed drinkers to congregate outside its premises which breached two of the 18 conditions placed on it licence.
The dossier states the shop ignored a majority of the other conditions which resulted in Brent Police requesting the council revoke its licence.
The shop owner now has 21 days to appeal the decision otherwise it must stop selling alcohol in mid-June.
