The South Wales Argus reports that a man was jailed for six months for selling counterfeit shirts bearing the logos of football clubs as well as rock and pop bands.

Andrew Jones and his wife, Jayne – who received a suspended sentence – sold items from their home in Newport through two eBay accounts, generating almost £160,000 in trade over a three-year period.

Counterfeit items included football shirts and t-shirts bearing the colours and insignia of clubs such as Stoke City, West Ham United and Aston Villa, and the logos of artists like Ed Sheeran, Bon Jovi and Arctic Monkeys.
