A 'LARGE value' of illegal cigarettes has been seized from a city centre shop.

Police officers from the Cathedral safer neighbourhood team and South Worcestershire Licensing team "smoked out" the cigarettes - though the shop has not been revealed.

Crews from Hereford and Worcester Fire Service were also involved in the raid.

A photo of the stash was tweeted by @sworcslicensing, which added: "A large value of illegal cigarettes smoked out and seized from a shop."

More when we get it.
