I searchbared this and got nothing.

Im going to a party this weekend and its a bring your own booze thingy. The only way i can get to the party is walking and so was wondering what is the UK law on under 18s having possession of alcohol. Im not going to drink it in public but will i get in as much trouble with the police if im carrying it?

Google only came up with laws about actually drinking the alcohol in public, before some smartarse replies with "Google".

Police will just confiscate it and send a letter to your parents. Keep it in an opaque bag.

Try branging it in like a christian backpack or something. You know, those faggy white backpacks with a big cross on them. That way the cops won't check you, unless they're filthy heathens.

It's rather unlikely that you're going to get caught drinking beer at a party.

The way it works in the US seems to be that if the cops bust a party, they just send everybody home besides the host. (I have seen cops throw away beer, tabs, and weed and just tell everybody to get out.)

I'd imagine that the UK has similar procedure considering that you guys actually practice harm reduction a lot more than we do.

It probably is illegal, but police discretion will save your ass on this one.

So every Ug'er now has to use the word brang? Nice

Right.
I learnt this on Qi.

You are allowed, from 5, to be in possession of alcohol. However, if the police can proove that you have been drinking it in a public place, or that somebody like a stranger, has brought it for you, and given it to you to drink, it can be confiscated.

However, all the community police officers and police around here always try to confiscate alcohol that they see people carrying, but if you fight your rights out, they'll leave you alone. They just pick on people who don't know the law.

Trust me it works, I've done it.

However, if you don't feel like full on confrontation with the police, I agree with the Christian backpack idea

i believe the police have to have good reason to search you, so if you keep it out of sight in a bag or something and dont break any laws while you're walking there you'll be fine.
aahh f**k it...

The WORST that will happen is that they take the beer of you.

Put it in a bag.

Well if you've just bought it, you HAVE to be in public area, what are you supposed to do, teleport home? I can't see how they'd get you for possession if you had it packed away somewhere.

Either get a taxi, or carry it in a bag they can't see through. I don't think they're allowed open up bags unless they've a valid reason for doing so.

I've gone very long distances with alcohol in a backpack.
But I've also carried booze around freely and I've had noone stop me.
How often do you even come across patrolling policemen in the UK!?

Yeah but if you're illegally drinking, like the TS must be doing to fear the police in such an occasion, you aren't going to be in a town centre

Well if you've just brought it, that means you are 18, and allowed to carry alcohol around with you.
