Thousands of pounds worth of fake Disney clothing featuring the Oscar-winning film Frozen, has been seized at Stansted Airport.

Border Force officers intercepted the £10,000 haul of dresses and bags, after arriving from China earlier this month.

Among the items discovered were 490 dresses and three bags all featuring images of Disney’s award winning animated film.

Disney has since confirmed that all of the products seized were counterfeit and will now be destroyed.

The firm will now decide whether to prosecute the importer privately or not.

James Morgan, assistant director in charge of Border Force at Stansted, said: “Everyone loves a bargain, but if the price appears too good to be true, it probably is.

“The international trade in counterfeit goods is linked to serious and organised crime and undercuts honest traders, damaging our economy.

“We are determined to crack down on this crime and we have officers working 24 hours a day to identify counterfeit goods before they reach the streets.”

Anyone who has been sold counterfeit goods or knows someone who is selling them can contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
