Burnley: Famous Shop closed by courts after selling illicit tobacco

A SHOP has been ordered by the courts to close for three months after selling illicit tobacco.

The Famous Shop, on Yorkshire Street, Burnley, was given the order after failing test purchases carried out by Lancashire County County Trading Standards officers.

Police officers in the town had also received information from the community about the shop selling illicit tobacco.

A spokesperson said: “Thanks to everyone that has helped us during this process, it is down to you that we have had such a positive outcome.”
