A task force to combat the problem of counterfeit and untaxed cigarettes in Nottinghamshire has been set up by Nottinghamshire County Council.

The council is investing £91,000 of its public health funding to fund two trading standards officers and fund investigations to focus on reducing the supply and use of illegal tobacco locally.

Officers will work with the Council’s public health officers, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and other agencies to crackdown on sellers of illegal tobacco and encourage local residents to avoid smoking counterfeit products.
