OFFICERS from trading standards swooped on a Kidderminster business and seized illegal tobacco for a third time this year. 

Officers found even more illicit tobacco at the shop after a visit on Tuesday (October 12). 

Worcestershire Trading Standards tweeted: "Our officers were out in #Kidderminster yesterday visiting a shop we've seized #illegaltobacco from twice previously this year.

"Yet more illegal tobacco found and seized."

Reacting to the bust, Wyre Forest MP Mark Garnier tweeted: "Good to see the team clamping down on illegal traders here in Wyre Forest."
