BRENT and Harrow Trading Standards Service and one of its officers were recognised for their tireless work.

The team and Lee Wenzel, accredited financial investigator, were 'highly commended' at the annual event held by the Anti Counterfeiting Group (ACG).

The award recognises enforcement organisations such as trading standards officers and their departments, police and customs for outstanding work against counterfeiting.

BHTS was recognised by the ACG for its work to claw back the ill-gotten gains of counterfeiters by using The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.

Mr Wenzel was also singled out for meticulously sifting through the financial accounts of counterfeits to enable the team to launch confiscation proceedings.
