"This is a great result for our Trading Standards team and it demonstrates that unlawful trading will not be tolerated in Northamptonshire. I would urge people not to buy counterfeit goods and only use reputable traders. It may be tempting to buy what appear to be authentic items at a low price, but if it seems too good to be true, it probably is."
