ILLEGAL ‘oversized’ vapes were seized from shops in Evesham during a raid by Worcestershire Trading Standards.

The new haul came from a return visit to premises officers, together with colleagues from Evesham Safer Neighbourhood Team, had visited previously.

In addition to the oversized e-cigarettes, more illegal tobacco was collected in the raids which took place today (Monday)

“The legal maximum tank size for an e-cigarette is 2ml (or around 600 puffs),” a tweet from Worcestershire trading standards read.

“These contained considerably more puffs. These vapes and their packaging are clearly targeting teenagers.”
