A KINMEL Bay man has pleaded guilty to eight offences under the Trade Marks Act 1994.

Royston Ashmore, of Llys y Castell, Kinmel Bay pleaded guilty to the offences at Mold Crown Court on Thursday and received a suspended sentence and was ordered to carry out unpaid work.

Ashmore, a general discount retailer, previously trading as Home Store on Mostyn Street, Llandudno, sold, among other items, toys and household items some of which bore famous brands and logos.

Officers from Conwy Trading Standards seized more than 24,000 counterfeit products from the store, including Ben 10, Angry Birds, Ped-egg, Formula 1 and Warner Bros.

Conwy Trading Standards bought the case after another store in Conwy was found to be selling counterfeit toys that had been supplied by Ashmore.
Ashmore was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment suspended for two years and ordered to complete 200 hours unpaid work.

He was also ordered to pay £4,000 contribution to legal costs.
