The Southall-based Myfone Accessories Ltd was found guilty of 15 offences of selling unsafe electrical items and three indictments for breaching trade mark laws.

Trading standards officers found 16 counterfeit mobile phone face plates; 89 iPad mini cases and 145 unsafe laptop adaptors at the company.

The items were being sold to retailers in and around Kensington and Chelsea, as well as in other parts of west London. All were completely untested, non-compliant with EU electrical safety standards and posed a real risk to consumers of causing fires; serious injury or even death.

Ealing's deputy leader and cabinet member for community services and safety, Councillor Ranjit Dheer said: "Cases like this show how councils are teaming up to crack down on the illegal trade of dangerous and fake goods; backed by the national body.

"The net is really closing in on criminals who try to dupe consumers and put them in danger just so they can turn a cheap profit." Full story at www.ealingtoday.co.uk
