A trader from Manor Park has been given a suspended jail sentence for selling counterfeit designer clothing on his stall at Dagenham market.

Vicky Singh of Romford Road, flogged the fake goods brandishing names such as Ralph Lauren, Converse and Louis Vuitton and is believed to have sold stock worth £35,000 this year alone.

He was snared after enforcement officers from Barking and Dagenham Council raided his stall and his trailer and seized around 750 different items.

Last week, the 27-year-old was given a year in jail suspended for two years ordered to carry out 150 hours community service and must pay £2,000 to the council in costs.

Councillor Laila Butt, cabinet member for enforcement and community safety, said: “Buying bogus brands may be tempting to those who are struggling to make ends meet but it’s a fool’s gold.

“Fake goods are often shoddily made and the buyer will have no chance of getting their money back.”
