THE BIGGEST ever seizure of counterfeit goods at a UK market took place at Wellesbourne at the weekend.
Four men were arrested and two vehicles seized at Wellesbourne Market after police and trading standards officers uncovered £3 million of fake clothing, trainers, DVDs, watches, make up, electrical items and jewellery on Saturday (September 14).
Nine other vehicles containing goods were abandoned when police swooped on the popular weekly market.
Warwickshire Trading Standards head Janet Faulkner said: “This seizure of counterfeit goods sends out a strong warning to traders selling fakes that their activities will not be tolerated in this county. The key priority of Warwickshire Trading Standards is to support legitimate businesses and take action against those who trade unlawfully and negligently.”
