Bill Bilon, head of BHTSS, said: “Time and time again, some traders seem to regard the sale of counterfeit goods as a victimless crime. “However, it deprives legitimate businesses of the opportunity of trading on a level playing field and it is intrinsically linked to supporting the ‘black market’ economy.
“It is at times such as these that it is even more important that rogue traders need to be driven out as they do not make any contribution to the local or national economy.”
Webber was fined on December 21.
