2 men, 1 aged 42, from Southport and the other 43, from Litherland,  were arrested on suspicion of illegal money lending, following an operation in the Sefton area of Merseyside.  The England Illegal Money Lending Team (IMLT) working in partnership with Sefton Trading Standards and Merseyside Police executed warrants at addresses in Bootle and Southport. IMLT officers seized a quantity of cash, mobile phones, documents and electronic equipment. Officers from Sefton Trading Standards seized a quantity of Tobacco and Cigarettes which are suspected to be counterfeit.  Tony Quigley, Head of the Illegal Money Lending Team said:- "We will continue to work to combat loan sharks.
