NEWS ROUNDUP: Electric-cargo bike loan and illicit cigarettes seized

 

16/03/21

A new electric-cargo bike delivery trial has launched in Leeds.

Each bike allows for up to 40 miles assisted cycling and has a load capacity of up to 900 litres.

West Yorkshire Trading Standards and the Kirklees Council licensing team which targets dealers of cheap and illicit tobacco have recently seized 90,000 cigarettes and almost 27kg of hand rolling tobacco. If genuine, the seized cigarettes would have been worth over £55,000, with a loss of duty to the tax payer of almost £35,000.

Musicians have recreated a selection of once-popular works by female composers whose pieces have been forgotten over time. Leeds Conservatoire students used sheet music in the city's Museums and Galleries collection to recreate the work which can now be heard online for the first time.
