Counterfeit goods with a street value of more than �1million have been seized following a raid on Wembley Market yesterday (Sunday).

The fake trainers, handbags and jewellery were confiscated from stall traders in a clampdown on dodgy traders by Brent Police and Brent and Harrow Trading Standards Services.

A further two people were held on immigration offences.

Sergeant Pete Goodchild from Tokyngton Safer Neighbourhoods Team said: “The value of the goods is quite amazing and it means a large amount of money has now being diverted away from criminal activity. We plan to conduct more of these operations in the near future.

“This was a great piece of partnership working with our colleagues at Brent Council.”
