Never Too Young, Apparently

Young Sonny Rees is already a local legend.

A restaurant has apologised after a toddler was served whisky instead of fruit juice at his birthday party.

Sonny Rees drank the 40% proof whisky at his 2nd birthday in a Frankie and Benny's restaurant in Swansea. His mother Nina Rees only realised the mistake after he had finished the drink.

Sonny, from Pontarddulais in Swansea, was taken to accident and emergency where he was kept under observation by doctors. The toddler is now recovering at home. The restaurant is investigating how the incident happened.
