A supermarket director has been ordered to pay more than £2,000 after selling WKD to a child.

Gunay Toguz sold the blue alcopop to a minor at Ceylan Supermarket in Lordship Lane, Wood Green, during a trading standards test purchase operation in February 2023.

During a hearing at Highbury Magistrates Court on April 11, Toguz, of Dickens Lane in Tottenham, pleaded guilty to breaching the Licensing Act 2033.

He was fined £1,038 and ordered to pay £800 in costs.

According to court documents, Toguz was also ordered to pay a surcharge of £415 to fund victim services.

A collection order was also made, meaning Toguz has until May 9 to pay.

Eubert Malcolm, Haringey Council’s assistant airector for stronger and safer communities, said: “This case serves as a timely reminder to businesses in our borough to take their licensing conditions seriously.

“If Haringey residents have any information about businesses who are flouting these regulations, we would encourage them to share it with us so that we can take action to protect our young people together.

“There are absolutely no excuses whatsoever for selling age-restricted products to children.”
