Ipswich shop awaits licence decision after 'sales of super strength alcohol'
An Ipswich newsagents is awaiting a decision on Monday over its licence - after fears were raised over "sales of super strength alcohol".
Officers have claimed there was "other suspected criminal activity occurring at the premises".
They said: "The sales of super strength alcohol is causing a large amount of ASB being felt in the area such as public order, nuisance, drunkenness, begging, violence and breaches of Covid regulations."
A report ahead of Ipswich Borough Council's licensing and regulatory sub-committee on Monday, June 14 accused "irresponsible management" of "failing to protect the public and local residents from crime and anti-social behaviour".
It also said businesses near to the Upper Brook Street store "are experiencing a disproportionate and unreasonable amount of anti-social behaviour".
However, owner Ali Reza Zarei said he believed Stop Press is being unfairly picked on by police when other shops are selling similar products.
