Rags to riches - counterfeit goods refashioned

Most counterfeit goods seized in the UK are incinerated to protect valuable brands.

A charity in Coventry has come up with a different solution and has refashioned fake clothing into saleable items.

The Coventry Cyrenians project has involved the young homeless people they help as well as students from Coventry University.

Ahead of opening a shop for their Refreshed goods, the clothes were showcased at a lifestyle event in the city centre.
