A 29-year-old woman who has been charged with trading in endangered species after parts of a tiger were found will face a judge.

Catherine Emberton, of Gleadless Road, Sheffield is accused of three offences under the Control of Trade in Endangered Species Regulations and one offence of fraud.

South Yorkshire Police said tiger claws and teeth were recovered last month.

Ms Emberton is due before Sheffield Crown Court on 30 October.

Police said a raid at a property was carried out in conjunction with the UK National Wildlife Crime Unit as part of an investigation into the illegal trade in tiger parts on the internet.
