Over 20,000 electrical goods have been seized during a massive, London-wide raid.

22 Trading Standards Officers, together with police, customs and immigration teams, descended on a warehouse in Enfield on 15th December 2015. The co-ordinated action was part of a project funded by National Trading Standards to combat sales of dangerous imports.

Goods inluding laptop chargers, adapters, Christmas lights, PC tablets and sat navs were seized during the raid.

Solihull Trading Standards have been extensively involved in combatting the rising tide of cheap, unsafe electrical goods coming into the country through Birmingham Airport. We will continue to work closely with Border Force to stop illegal goods getting through.
