Information Alert – Norfolk illegal tobacco roadshow 2018 – 26 July 2018

We are urging people to help protect children in Norfolk by reporting illegal tobacco sales to aid the crackdown on traders who sell illegal cigarettes and tobacco.

From Tuesday 7 August Trading Standards and Public Health officers will be will be visiting Great Yarmouth, King’s Lynn, Thetford and Norwich and are calling on people to come along to find out more about illegal tobacco and its dangers.

You will also be able to meet Yoyo the tobacco sniffer dog who has played a big part in the illegal tobacco seizures successfully made by our Trading Standards officers in the past year and see him working with his handler to practice searching for tobacco.  Trainee sniffer dogs Peggy and Maggie will also be there.

Roadshow dates and locations:

  • Great Yarmouth Market Place - Tuesday 7 August, 9am-5pm
  • King’s Lynn Vancouver Quarter shopping centre - Wednesday 8 August, 9am-5pm
  • Thetford Kings Square - Thursday 9 August, 9am-5pm
  • Norwich the Forum - Friday 10 August, 8.30am-6pm

During the week we will be sharing information from the roadshow events each day on our Facebook page and on Twitter.
