      Twelve million counterfeit cigarettes have been discovered during a search of a warehouse in Gateshead.

      HM Revenue and Customs officers said it took three lorries to remove the haul and a full day to count the cigarettes.

      The haul, worth £2.2m, was found during checks on industrial sites in the area on Wednesday.

      Counterfeit cigarettes is a massive money maker but also a potential killer.
