Counterfeit goods: Five top tips for spotting them

Parents are being warned about 'snap bracelet' children's toys with counterfeit branding of Disney's 'Frozen' on them, that are potentially dangerous for children.

The bracelets are made up of a flat steel spring band, sealed with a plastic cover. It wraps around the wrist when slapped against it. They are cheaply available on online auction sites.

Nottinghamshire County Council is warning that the plastic casing on the fake band is only very thin and that it is likely to rip, exposing a sharp, cut-up piece of metal that could cut a child's wrist.

So, how to you spot counterfeit goods? Here are five top tips:

  • Be wary of "too good to be true" bargains
  • Be wary of goods sold in car boot sales or pubs
  • Examine the stitching and seams in shoes and clothing
  • Check for poor quality labels and packaging
  • Buy toys from a recognised retailer

Gloris Smith from Nottingham missing for a month

The family of a woman who has been missing from Nottingham for a month are appealing for help in finding her.

50-year-old Gloris Smith from Nuthall was last seen on 22 October 2014.

She was seen in Worksop that day but it is believed she then travelled to Rotherham.

Gloris is described as black, about 5ft 4ins tall, of slim build, with black hair. She is slimmer than in her photo and may have different hair, possibly a short Afro-style.

"She had not been feeling herself before she went missing and was feeling quite low. She said she couldn't really speak to us about it but it obviously got too much for her.

We've gone through a mixture of emotions - upset, worried. But I find I worry the most at night. The nights are the hardest when I go to bed wondering where she is sleeping and if is she safe.

We would just urge anyone who has a suspicion they may have seen her to just pick up the phone and contact the police.

We are worried about her and it has turned our lives upside down. We just want her to come back safely."

– Nicola, Gloris' daughter
