Raids across Oxfordshire seize 25,000 illegal cigarettes

More than 25,000 illegal cigarettes have been seized in raids on shops across Oxfordshire.

Trading Standards and police officers discovered the cigarettes - with an estimated street value of £8,000 - at shops in Witney and Cowley.

The teams raided three shops following undercover surveillance and tip-offs from the public.
