POLICE chiefs urged shops to stop selling bottles of Frosty Jack’s cider after discovering a rough sleeper’s den in Wisbech.
The den was discovered in the woods off Harecroft Road, close to the entrance to the Hudson leisure centre, with a pile of empty bottles of Frosty Jack’s nearby.
Medication was also recovered.
Sgt Dave Bax, Fenland licensing officer, said: “The pictures are shocking and show a number of individuals sleeping rough and consuming large quantities of Frosty Jack’s cider.
“This cider is high strength at 7.5 per cent ABV. It is sold by a number of local shops and some choose to sell these in large quantities to street drinkers.
