HUNDREDS of illegal cigarettes have been seized from two shops in Ormskirk and Skelmersdale following a police raid.

Neighbourhood officers teamed up with Trading Standards to carry out inspections of the two shops which followed tip-offs from the public.

In total 555 E-cigarettes and 311 illegal/counterfeit cigarettes were seized in the joint raids.

A post on the Skelmersdale Police Facebook page read: “Trading Standards will be dealing further with the managers of these two shops.

“We are aware of the huge concern around children using vapes/E-cigs and we will continue to work with Trading Standards to identify any other shops that choose to ignore the rules.”
