Over 18000 Pounds Worth of Illegal E-cigarettes Seized
Four e-cigarette shops in Newcastle-under-Lyme were raided and nearly 1400 illegal e-cigarettes worth over £18,000 were confiscated.

According to a BBC report on September 19th, the United Kingdom's Trading Standards department conducted surprise inspections on four e-cigarette shops in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, England on September 18th. The inspections resulted in the seizure of nearly 1,400 illegal e-cigarettes. These e-cigarettes were all high-capacity disposable products with a retail value exceeding £18,000 (about RMB 160,000).


Laura Burgess, a staff member of the Newcastle and Aderley County Trading Standards Office, said that according to UK regulations, the capacity of e-cigarette liquid is limited to 2 milliliters, approximately equivalent to 600 puffs. However, some seized products have an e-liquid capacity as high as 14 milliliters, approximately equivalent to 7000 puffs.


Currently, the case is under further investigation.


According to the report, it has been revealed that the county has confiscated more than 8,000 illegal e-cigarette products so far this year, a decrease from the 9,500 products confiscated during the same period last year.
