Local government reorganisation may open the floodgates to Britain being flooded with counterfeit goods as trading standards departments are broken up, according to a feature in the Yorkshire Post (p10).

Anthea Wordsall, secretary of the Anti-Counterfeiting Group, which represents most of the major companies affected by fakes, said:

'There are inherent difficulties anyway in having locally based trading standards officers trying to deal with counterfeiting because counterfeiters don't operate within local authority boundaries,' she told the paper.

'Moving to a situation in which the number of local authorities' areas is multiplied through reorganisation will, we fear, mean that the situation is going to become much more difficult.'
