No more raids

Investigations into counterfeit products and traders are ongoing.

In the meantime, more raids could be considered as part of a campaign to stop the sale of counterfeit goods.

Councilor Andy Crump, Community Safety Cabinet Member at Warwickshire County Council, said: ‘Many counterfeit products, especially cosmetics, jewelry and electronics, can be dangerous, while the sale of all counterfeits harm local retailers and the economy at large. “

“We will continue to work with the police and others to combat the sale of counterfeit products.”

Anyone can report the sale of counterfeit products to commercial standards through the Citizens Advice consumer helpline on 0808 223 1133 or visit the website here
