Telford trading standards recover most counterfeit electrical goods

The figures show that Telford & Wrekin Council trading standards has seized electrical goods worth £200,000 since 2008 – much of it destined for sale over the internet.

This is more than three times the worth of the second highest number of seizures by Glasgow City Council, which collected counterfeit items valued at £64,000 over the five year period.

The study shows, across Great Britain, the value of counterfeit electrical goods seized has risen from £2,614,783 in 2009 to a staggering £15,725,462 in 2012, according to figures gathered from local councils and Border Force.
