ADULTS who buy booze for under-age drinkers during tomorrow's Pixie Day celebrations face being hit with an �80 on the spot fine, police have warned.

Ottery neighbourhood beat manager Phil Thomas said the issue of youngsters drinking alcohol at the event has diminished over recent years but told the Herald the town will be well policed tomorrow.

He said: "We will be looking out for any signs of under-age drinking. The parents of anyone we do come across will be called and told to pick them up.

"We will also be monitoring the possibility over 18s may be buying alcohol for those under age."
