A trader at Barking Market has been fined and given a community order after he was caught selling fake Ralph Lauren children’s t-shirts.

Khalid Jawed, 34, of Sheringham Drive, Barking, was caught with more than 400 counterfeit items during a routine market inspection by Trading Standards.

Last week at Snaresbrook Crown Court he was ordered to pay £4,000, to be shared by the government and the council to fund crime prevention efforts, and more than £1,000 in court costs.

He was also given a 40 hour community order.

Cllr Laila Butt, cabinet member for enforcement and community safety, said: “It’s unfair on consumers and it’s unfair on other shops and stalls who are selling legitimate goods.

“It is important we clamp down on anyone selling unlicensed products within our borough.

“Anyone considering breaking the rules should watch out - we will look to catch you and to prosecute.”
