Xmas crackdown

TRADING Standards officers will be cracking down on the sale of fake items in the run up to Christmas.

They are warning consumers to be wary of fake goods and other scams during the festive period.

Trading Standards will also be carrying out checks throughout Doncaster borough and on websites. In addition, they are encouraging markets and car boot fairs to work with them.

Cynthia Ransome, cabinet member for communities, said: “Fakes goods fund organised crime and can be dangerous to consumers.”
