Crackdown on illegal cigarette trade in South West

A campaign has been launched to crack down on the sale of illegal cigarettes and tobacco in the South West.

It coincides with a series of raids by Trading Standards officers, supported by the police, on five shops in Swindon.

At one, thousands of pounds worth of illegally made products were seized.

It is estimated that 16% of smokers in the South West buy illegal tobacco.
