North Ayrshire Council is backing a police campaign to crack down on under-age drinkers and antisocial behaviour.
The Strathclyde Police campaign is aiming to raise awareness about the consequences of buying alcohol for those who are under-age.
During the blitz against booze, officers will visit licensed premises to deter under-age purchases and to offer advice, support and reassurance to staff.
The main aim will be to reduce the amount of alcohol getting into the hands of under-age drinkers.
North Ayrshire Council Director of Community Safety, Chief Inspector Roddy Newbigging, said: “Alcohol-related antisocial behaviour and crime are blights on all our communities.
“My officers have already reported a number of adults to the Procurator Fiscal for purchasing alcohol for under-age youths in the past few weeks and we will continue to work with communities in an attempt to reduce this problem.”
