Faking it: Charity re-uses counterfeit clothes

Instead of handing counterfeit designer clothes to customs or trading standards to be destroyed, they are being donated to a charity for redistribution to the homeless and vulnerable.

His Church Charity are given lorry-loads of clothes that have been seized from market stalls and online sellers.

They remove any trace of the fake labels and, after rebranding them with their own logo, they are allowed to hand them out to charities in the UK and overseas.

Emma Jane Kirby reports.
