Wembley market trader convicted of selling fake Superdry clothing
Court heard he also sold counterfeit Ecko and Lyle & Scott goods
A MARKET trader who sold fake designer clothing on his stall has been ordered to carry out 200 hours community work.
Richard John Cowles, 39, was caught selling the counterfeit goods in Wembley Market after his stall was raided by officers from Brent and Harrow Trading Standards (BHTSS).
Around 150 items branding an array of designer names including Superdry, ECKO and Lyle & Scott were seized last September.
Brent Magistrates Court heard if the clothing was genuine, they would be worth more than �3,400.
