Crackdown on illegal traders

Sheffield City Council is to crackdown on illegal traders. It is warning Christmas shoppers to beware of buying from unlicenced traders - and from netting themselves counterfeit bargains. And it is warning illegal traders themselves that it will be taking action against them.

The Council have been working with the Police to move on illegal traders in the city centre . Peddlers have been reminded about the terms of their licence in a bid to protect shoppers and retailers in the city centre.
