DODGY Del-Boy traders are bringing misery to Christmas.
Trading standards officers across West Yorkshire have warned of a deluge of shoddy fakes and deadly toys on sale.
And in a big crackdown in towns including Huddersfield, they seized goods which could bring serious injury on Christmas morning.
Toy dogs were found to have parts with razor-sharp edges and flashing pendants and imitation dummies - aimed at clubbers - were very fragile and had small parts which could choke.
The teams also seized fake designer clothes, mobile phone covers and accessories worth £20,000, labelled with big names such as Henry Lloyd, Lacoste, Paul and Stone Island.
"We are very concerned about the amount of counterfeit goods being sold with quality and safety flaws," said fair trading manager Paul Cooper.
"These people set up stall on our pedestrian precincts and offer goods for sale out of a suitcase or out of a dustbin bag. They are illegal and if they see a police officer they run."
He urged people to stick to well-established businesses.
