A MIDLOTHIAN licensee has been warned for failing to comply with legislation on staff selling alcohol.

Midlothian Licensing Board has decided to issue a written warning to Mohammed Abbas regarding his running of the Newtongrange Store 2 in Gardiner Place.

The board was told last week that unannounced visits by licensing inspectors had uncovered employees’ lack of knowledge about selling alcohol and no documentation on their training.
