UK: A One Stop Shop refused to sell a bottle of cider to 67-year-old Chris Page because he could not produce acceptable ID. Page, who doesn´t have a license or passport, offered to combine his photo bus pass and birth certificate to no avail.
The retailer previously lost its license to sell alcohol due to "lax selling". The strict ID policy was a condition of the getting the license back. In 2009 they drew attention by refusing to sell to a 68- and 70-year-old based on the same policy.
"They wouldn´t accept my bus pass, even though it´s got my photo. I might look a little bit younger than 67 but I certainly don´t look anywhere near 18. It was completely ludicrous," said Page.
