Pensioners in Lancashire are reaping the rewards of a police crackdown on underage drinking by enjoying a festive tipple of alcopops.
Police were running out of space for the cans and bottles
Police have given residents at a Kirkham sheltered housing scheme hampers containing alcohol confiscated by officers.
More than 1,000 bottles and cans were taken from teenagers in an operation targeting the young drinkers.
The festive hampers were handed out by officers at the flats.
Police Community Support Office Annette Begg has been organising distribution of the alcohol, which includes lager, cider and alcopops.
She said: "We have been saving all the booze we have collected from underage drinkers in and around the Kirkham area and basically we have now run out of room to store any more.
"We hope that by doing this some good will come from what has been a problem for our local communities.
"We hope that the recipients will be able to enjoy a glass or two over the Christmas period, making this time of year just that bit more special thanks to our local underage drinkers."
Special "youth nuisance patrols" have been under way in the area at weekends.
