Spalding licence review after medicine and food investigations

The shop failed regulations and food safety measures

Lincolnshire Police have accused a Spalding business owner of selling medicine and food against regulations.

The force has applied to South Holland District Council for a review of the alcohol licence at Fantasia, on Bourne Road.

Documents before the authority said officers had evidence of medicines being sold without displaying English on the packaging.

They also said there had been non-compliance with EU regulations and food safety and hygiene regulations by offering food after the ‘use by’ date.

“As a result, Lincolnshire Police believes that there is a lack of promotion of the licensing objectives in respect of the prevention of crime and disorder, public safety and the protection of children from harm,” said the report.

The premises licence for the business has been held by Hemen Ahmad since January 2015. He is also the designated premises supervisor and holds a personal licence from North Lincolnshire Council.

Councillors will review the licence on Thursday, March 19.
