A number of stall holders and their vehicles were investigated.  The fake goods were seized and nine men were arrested.  The amount of fake goods that were seized is thought to be the biggest ever made by Trading Standards Officers in Cambridgeshire.

Cambridgeshire County Council's Acting Head of Supporting Businesses and Communities, Aileen Andrews said "This was another excellent result for us "“ we're sending a message out to counterfeit traders that we just won't tolerate fake and inferior goods in our county. Aside from the trademark issues there can be safety implications on substandard products, as well as taking business away from legitimate traders."
