A MAJOR clampdown on binge and underage drinking starts in Huddersfield today.
The move comes after Kirklees Police got government cash under a scheme called the Responsible Alcohol Sales Campaign.
The extra money means more police, police community support officers and specials to tackle the problem.
Underage youngsters will be used to see if bar staff sell booze to them – and undercover police will be in pubs, clubs and off-licences to see if staff are serving people who are already drunk.
West Yorkshire Assistant Chief Constable David Crompton said: “Booze is cheap and some people simply don’t know when to stop.”
