Derby launches counterfeit goods amnesty

An amnesty for counterfeit goods has been launched in Derby to help raise awareness about the link between the trade and organised crime.

A bin has been placed in the foyer of the Council House on Corporation Street, where items can be dropped off anonymously until 15 December.

No action will be taken against anyone who uses it, said the city council.

The authority said profits from counterfeit goods often help fund crimes such as people trafficking.

The scheme is being run by the council, trading standards and Crimestoppers.
