A MOUNTAIN of bootleg discs has been collected in Midlothian.

More than 16,000 counterfeit DVDs and CDs, with an estimated street value of more than £50,000, have been sent for destruction by Midlothian Council’s trading standards department.

The 10,000 films, 2,000 music CDs, 2,000 computer games and 2,000 software discs were gathered over a five-year period after being seized or surrendered from markets and homes where they were being mass-produced.
