    A large haul of dodgy cigarettes and vapes has been seized by police during raids across businesses in South Gloucestershire. Avon and Somerset Police said officers visited the local businesses to check for illegal vapes and tobacco products on the premises.

    They were joined by South Gloucestershire Council and Trading Standards officers during the operations. In the end, a huge haul of illegal products was discovered across businesses in Staple Hill, Patchway and Winterbourne.

    Following the seizures, police tweeted a picture of the haul. The image shows a large number of items squeezed into the boot of a car along with bags and boxes of the illegal vapes and cigarettes on the pavement next to one of the force’s sniffer dogs.

    A post from South Gloucestershire’s police team said, “Neighbourhood officers from Staple Hill, Patchway and Winterbourne in company with South Gloucestershire Council and Trading Standards have conducted visits to local businesses, check for illegal vapes and tobacco. The results were having lots of seizures for vapes and cigarettes.”
