Fake DVDs seized from Morecambe Market stall

PC Rob Brookbanks and PCSO Philip Meeks with some of the counterfeit DVDs seized from a Morecambe Market stall at the weekend.

Police seized over 800 counterfeit DVDs from a stall on Morecambe market on Sunday, including copies of recent blockbuster movies, some of which are still only on show in cinemas.

The items have now been passed on to Trading Standards, who will continue the investigation.

PC Rob Brookbanks, community beat manager for Morecambe town centre, said: “Selling counterfeit goods not only rips off the customer, who receives shoddy or poor quality goods in return for their cash, but it also impacts on the reputation of other traders operating on the market.

“We work closely with Trading Standards to try to prevent sales of counterfeit goods and to preserve the integrity of our markets so that the whole community can enjoy them.”
