A crackdown on retailers selling lighter refills to young people has been launched by the Department of Health and trading standards officers. The campaign, led by DoH's Health Promotion England unit, highlights the legal consequences for retailers who sell gas refills to under 18s. However, the Association of Convenience Stores said the problems of assessing the age of customers strengthened the call for identity cards. "An identity card is the solution and the government needs to be more supportive of this issue," said James Lowman of the ACS. Shopkeepers are being told to ensure that staff and customers on the premises are aware volatile substances will not be sold to under-18s. . {{NEWS }}
