London Trading Standards week

The team contributed to the daily activities of LTS week, a London wide campaign designed to highlight the diverse and important work that trading standards carry out across the capital.

The five day campaign had a different theme each day and Southwark’s team contributed to the whole event. There was a variety of actions, including public warnings about a recent spate of rogue trader activity, advice on buying used cars plus business advice about the safety rules when selling second hand car tyres. 

Trading Standards work on letting agents and the underage sales of knives and other age restricted products also received extensive media attention.
