In March 2013 police officers searched home of Stuart Ashley, who operated a business as a street seller, and seized a large quantity of DVD films.

The 39-year-old plead guilty to a contravention of the Trade Marks Act  and in December 2013 was sentenced to a Community Payback Order for 200 hours unpaid work.

Lindsey Miller, Procurator Fiscal for Organised Crime & Counter Terrorism, said: “Ashley sought to line his pockets by undermining local businesses and the wider entertainment industry.
