HORRIFIED market shoppers watched in disbelief as trading standards officers were bundled to the ground in a dramatic scuffle during a raid to seize fake goods.

An angry stall holder chased a male and female officer at Felixstowe's popular Sunday seafront market after they had seized bags of alleged counterfeit Adidas gear from his stall.

Police were called as a female trading standards officer was grabbed by the neck and pushed to the floor, and a male colleague was also knocked to the ground.

The raid at the site in Sea Road was one of a series of co-ordinated swoops across the country that netted tens of thousands of pounds worth of fake gear.
