How Did Strangeways Become the Counterfeit Capital of the UK?

Ask a Question

The inner-city spot - between Cheetham Hill and Strangeways - was last year named as the counterfeit capital of the U.K. in a government report

The mile-long stretch of shops where you can buy everything from the latest Beats headphones to brand new Adidas trainers at bargain prices. But there’s a catch - too many of the items on sale are knock off versions of the real thing.

The inner-city spot - between Cheetham Hill and Strangeways - was last year named as the counterfeit capital of the U.K. in a government report.

Fake-brand trainers and handbags, cheap tobacco and electronics have become a mainstay of the shuttered-up shops along Bury New Road. Medication such as diazepam and ****** are also easy to get hold of.

Anyone been here to the fake/counterfeit 'market' before and if so what has been your good or bad expirience?
