Images have been released which show the counterfeit luxury items sold by a Bolton couple at Dorset Market.

Mohammed Ali and wife Kauser Ali were visited by trading standards on the bank holiday in August last year.

Mrs Ali told the officers she did not know about counterfeits.

However the 55-year-old had pleaded guilty to selling these items in July 2020.

Mr Ali also gave a different address in Bolton to the one he was listed as living at.

The pair pleaded guilty to nine offences under the Trade Marks Act at Weymouth Court.

At Bolton Magistrates' Court this month, the pair from Armadale Road were both given a year in prison suspended for two years.

Mr Ali was ordered to 300 hours of unpaid work and Mrs Ali was placed on a curfew from 6pm to 6am to run for six months.

They were ordered to pay the prosecution costs of £931.

The brands which were involved in the sales included Nike, Adidas, Christian Dior, Lacoste, Prada, Ralph Lauren and Yves St Lauren.

Now Dorset Council has released some images of the counterfeit items which the couple sold.

These show a Lacoste handbag, a North Face top and Nike trainers.

Cllr Laura Beddow, Dorset Council’s portfolio holder for culture, communities and customer services, said action would be taken against individuals selling fake goods.

She said: “The sale of counterfeit goods can undermine the reputation of the brands they are imitating but also severely damage businesses selling the genuine items.

“Anyone caught selling fake goods in Dorset will face robust legal action by the Council’s trading standards service.”

On the previous occasion when Mrs Ali appeared in court in relation selling counterfeit goods she was filmed selling the items at four different markets across the UK.

She was described as a prolific trader in fake goods.
