LARGE numbers of under-age drinkers celebrating their GCSE results are expected to try their luck in Huddersfield town centre bars.
Groups of young friends will be aiming for sneaky drinking binges.
The question for parents is: Do you know what your son or daughter is up to?
The pressure is firmly on pubs and clubs to turn the teenagers away.
Many of the youngsters, who often look older, may start trying to get into pubs as early as tomorrow lunchtime, while unsuspecting mums and dads are at work.
Bar staff will have to keep a lookout for baby-faced boozers as under-age drinking is at an all-time high.
Police today warned landlords they face a £1,000 fine if they are caught serving booze to youngsters who may be celebrating or drowning their sorrows.
The landlords could also lose their licences if they have been caught before.
Huddersfield police commander Chief Supt Barry South said: "We're clamping down on under-age drinking, targeting nightclubs and visiting premises with Kirklees Council and fire officers.
"Teenagers can look older nowadays.
"And it can be difficult for somebody running a bar or pub to judge whether they're old enough.
"The only way to be sure is to ask for approved identification, such as proof of age cards, driving licences or passports. Always ask for ID. If young people are hanging around your premises, check with customers if they have been asked to buy alcohol on their behalf," he added.
"If in doubt, refuse the sale. The consequences are just not worth it."
Under-16s are drinking twice as much today as the same group10 years ago.
As part of the National Alcohol Misuse Enforcement Campaign, police are working with pubs, clubs and off-licences in Huddersfield to curb this trend.
The police are also running an awareness campaign, the Know Your Limit blitz, which aims to make young people think about the damage boozing can do.
