Torrevieja´s local police have destroyed over 35 thousand fake items that were being sold by mainly illegal street hawkers.

Torrevieja mayor, José Manuel Dolón, witnessed a ceremonial destruction which included counterfeit watches, sunglasses, CDs and DVDs said to have a black market value of over 700 thousand euros.

Dolón said:- “This is something that we treat very seriously as legal businesses have been hit by the cheap sale of these items”.

Clothing and other items that are not fakes, but were still seized for being sold illegally, have been handed over to the municipality´s social services department to pass onto needy families.
