Beware cheap branded goods. That is the message from Nottinghamshire Trading Standards after officers seized hundreds of potentially unsafe and counterfeit items from a site in Kirkby-in-Ashfield.
They seized around 450 items from a Facebook seller. The items included electrical items such hair straighteners, children's and adult clothing, make-up and perfume.
But officers are particularly concerned about children's trainers with a USB cable inserted into them which charges the multi coloured lights built into the sole along with a charging battery.
Councillor Glynn Gilfoyle, Chair of Nottinghamshire County Council's Community Safety Committee, said:
As well as clothing there are various electrical goods such as headphones & trainers which are potentially a fire risk as they haven't been tested to see if they're safe.
