A TRADER was snared at a car-boot sale in Hucknall with more than 700 counterfeit DVDs, a court has heard.
Paul Lawrence (38), of Blackstone Close, Alfreton, Derbyshire, was caught peddling the discs at the sale off Hucknall bypass last September.

Nottingham Magistrates Court heard that other titles being sold included ‘Cars 2’, ‘Shrek Collection’, ‘Zookeeper’, ‘Thor’ and ‘Green Lantern’. All had photocopied covers and titles written in marker pen on the discs themselves.
