Woman's slap on the wrist for illegal tobacco sales
A woman who was illegally selling thousands of pounds worth of tobacco has avoided a jail sentence.
Rosemarie Ann Burton of Swan Close, Weston-super-Mare, entered five guilty pleas at North Somerset Magistrates Court following a raid on her home.
She was suspected for selling tobacco bought abroad and from a lorry driver friend.
She admitted selling hand-rolling tobacco without correct safety labelling and pictures and failing to display a notice stating that it is illegal to sell tobacco products to anyone under 18.
