*UPDATE* FAKE goods worth millions of pounds have again been seized at Wellesbourne Market.
Warwickshire trading standards officers seized £4.2 million in counterfeit goods in a swoop on Saturday (December 14), including fake clothing, perfumes and electrical products with brand names including Adidas, Superdry, Chanel and dr dre. The raid followed a £3.1 million seizure in September.
Of particular concern to officers were the number of counterfeit electrical items seized, including counterfeit hairdryers and straighteners on sale to Christmas shopping bargain-hunters. Tests revealed these items had potentially lethal safety defects.
Other fake electrical items tested had used wiring that was so thin it could melt in use – risking fire or electrocution.
