The Barbados Water Authority is the second entity to make a statement regarding a widely circulated video on social media showing a minor consuming what appears to be a Banks beer in the presence of two adults.

The BWA says it condemns this action which can only be described as irresponsible and disgraceful.

Initial investigations suggest that the male in the video appears to be wearing a BWA uniform.

While this has now become a police matter and has also been referred to the Child Care Board, the BWA is also conducting an internal investigation.

Just Wednesday Banks Holdings Limited indicated that it had notified the authorities about the video which shows one of their products.

Manager of legal and corporate affairs at BHL Sophia Allsopp-Cambridge made it clear that such behaviour will not be tolerated.

She said their alcoholic beverages should only be consumed by persons over the age of 18
