Images show a huge plastic bag containing various brands of vapes.

Disposable nicotine vapour products must contain no more than 2ml of liquid under UK law, the equivalent nicotine to one packet of cigarettes.

Two millilitres of liquid equates to around 600 puffs in a vape product; some of the products seized contained around 3,500 puffs.
