FAKE DVD'S SEIZED BY CUSTOMS  

Thousands of fake DVDs have been stopped from coming into the country through the Channel tunnel after they were seized by customs officers.

The DVDs, which included The Passion of the Christ and Kill Bill 2, were seized o­n 30 April.

A spokesman for South East customs said the DVDs, sent from Malaysia to Dusseldorf, were being imported into the UK using a courier service.

Details have o­nly just been released because it was part of an o­n-going operation.

Other titles in the haul of around 15,000 DVD's included films not yet released in the UK including The Alamo, The Whole Ten Yards, with Bruce Willis, and The Punisher starring John Travolta.

Customs are reported to have said that no-one had been arrested over the seizure.
