Three traders from Portobello Market may go on trial for allegedly selling illegal ivory in what police say will be a landmark case.
They are being prosecuted under laws that state ivory can only be sold if it can be proved that it dates to before 1947.
The potential court action follows a year-long Met police investigation at the market into the sale of ivory artefacts and other items from endangered species, such as turtles and crocodiles.
Plainclothes officers patrol the stalls checking for examples of new ivory — which is illegal — and advising traders on the law regarding antique pieces.
