McCarthy was caught selling the goods by Barking and Dagenham Council enforcement officers in December 2017.

Trading standards officers seized 436 items of clothing with Ralph Lauren and Nike logos including jumpers, t-shirts and tracksuits.

Andy Opie, operational director for enforcement and community safety, said: "This was a planned operation that has resulted in a fantastic outcome and is a step in the right direction to protect our residents and other consumers who visit our markets.

"We welcome businesses in the borough, but they must operate within the rules and act in a manner that is socially acceptable."
