A Cumbrian woman has become one of the youngest people to obtain a Personal Licence. Chloe Hogg, 18, officially received her alcohol licence on her 18th birthday at her dad’s pub, Fantails, in Wetheral.

The teenager, from Carlisle, took a day-long training course to get a Personal Licence in May – meaning she can supply or authorise the supply of alcohol at any licensed premises by way of being named the Designated Premises Supervisor.

Chloe took the course in May 2017, passing the exam, but had to wait until her 18th birthday before being granted her Personal Licence.  Congratulations Chloe!
