Sergeant Dougie Grieve from Dalkeith Police station said: “We wish to make the public aware of this incident in the hope that it deters anyone from doing this.

“The supply of alcohol to youths not only places their safety at risk but the associated anti-social behaviour following alcohol consumption can hit communities hard.

“Those found to be doing this risk a large fine and/or imprisonment.”
