The force said: “The door staff have a responsibility to confiscate any form of ID presented to them which does not belong to the individual presenting it as proof of age, or is a fake ID.

“The driving licences and passports will then be collected by the liquor licensing enforcement officer and brought to the police station where they are placed in envelopes and returned to the issuing office.“To replace a driving licence it will cost you £20 plus new photos and for a replacement passport the current cost is £75.50 plus supporting documents and new photos.”
