A trader who sold fake and dangerous phone accessories has been jailed for one year.

Shahid Said, director of Platinum Connect Ltd and Platinum Electronics Ltd, in Whitchurch Lane, Edgware, sold electrical equipment that breached health and safety regulations.

An investigation by Brent and Harrow Trading Standards spanning several years found the products could have caused electric shocks and were not insulated or properly marked.

At Harrow Crown Court last week, his company was also fined £10,000 and Mr Said was asked to pay back £21,788 under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
