INVESTIGATORS who caught a company selling a 'dangerous' teeth whitening product at the Royal Welsh Show will be on television this morning.

The work of Trading Standards officers, who tackled a company selling a dangerous teeth whitening product at the show, which had netted it £2.6 million, is to feature on BBC One’s ‘Ill Gotten Gains’ at 11am this morning (Friday).

Operation Gleam saw trading standards officers catch criminals selling a teeth whitening product containing over 100 times the permitted amount of hydrogen peroxide at the Royal Welsh Show in 2013.

Their assets were frozen and the council is reclaiming its cost through the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA).

The last defendant to be targeted as part of the enforcement proceedings owes £1.1 million and faces a seven-year prison sentence if he does not pay up.

So far £185,000 has been recovered.

Cllr James Evans, Portfolio Holder for Regulatory Services, said: “It is great that the work of our trading standards officers has attracted nationwide interest from the television networks and I will be making sure that I catch up with these two episodes of ‘Ill Gotten Gains’ on BBC One, which I expect will make for fascinating viewing.

“These successes were only achieved due to the dedicated work of our investigators, together with effective partnerships with Dyfed-Powys Police and others including Littleton Murdock Limited, Apex Chambers, the regional Investigation team for Wales and the Intellectual Property Office.”
