New warnings to shoppers today after fake designer items are being flogged in Leicester by street traders.

Police have found street traders in Leicester city centre selling fake mobile telephones, as well as fake sports and leisure items with brand names like Nike, Adidas and Gucci. The street trader responsible was arrested and cautioned for fraud.

Officers told Capital that a closer examination of fake Gucci shoes revealed that not only were items poorly made, but screws fitting the heel to the shoe were likely to break and cause injury to the wearer.

PC Martin Rawlings is investigating street crimes in the city centre. He said: “Fake fashion clothing and accessories are usually poorly made. They can be dangerous for people wearing them. Please help us and report street traders to the Police.” 

Ronald Ruddock, Trading Standards Manager for Leicester City Council said: “Counterfeit products not only risk the health or wealth of its purchasers, but also impacts on the interest of the legitimate and honest traders who comply with the law.”
