A PUB landlady who was caught serving children on three separate occasions has lost her licence.
Julie Dove, who ran the Golden Cross in Union Road, Oswaldtwistle, was banned by Hyndburn Council's Licensing Sub-Commitee after police discovered staff had served alcohol to youngsters.
The committee met on Wednesday to determine the future of the pub's licence, which is currently held by Thwaites Brewery.
Councillors heard how earlier this year PC Les Sholicar ran four test purchasing operations at the pub, which involved under-age teenagers entering the premises and ordering drinks from the bar.
During one of the operations Mrs Dove refused to serve them without ID but on three other occasions staff served them alcohol without asking any questions. They ranged from 14 to 16 years old.
The third offence resulted in a mandatory review of the licence.
Thwaites took control of the pub and removed Mrs Dove from management.
PC Sholicar told the committee: "Since the incidents, Thwaites has put forward proposals as to how the premises should be run and has come up with proposals we are happy with."
The committee agreed to let Thwaites keep the pub open because of the new measures which had been implemented, including monthly reviews between the licensee and a Thwaites area manager, keeping a diary of all incidents that happen at the pub and ensuring all staff have the necessary training which Thwaites provides.
Earlier this month the new licensee, Les Gregory, turned almost 80 people away in one weekend after they failed to produce ID.
PC Sholicar said after the meeting: "We are impressed with the way Thwaites has responded to the problem and we look forward to working in partnership with them."
Mr Gregory said: "We are trying to get it back to a local pub again. We have painted all the walls and transformed the place. We have had good feedback from regulars and hope to make a positive contribution."
Mrs Dove refused to comment.
