Two men and a woman have been arrested in a series of major anti-piracy raids in Wales.

Labels body the BPI, whose investigators assisted in the Cardiff Trading Standards-led joint operation, says the alleged criminals were major supplies to British music and film piracy gangs.

"This was a very professional investigation by Cardiff Trading Standards," comments BPI chief executive Geoff Taylor in a statement, "and we expect this successful operation to cause major disruption to the supply and distribution of counterfeit masters nationwide."
