Updated 20 May 2002, 18.25

The first fake copies of Attack of the Clones have been found in the UK.

A raid on a market in Scotland found nearly 2,000 videos and DVDs from one single stall.

A team from North Lanarkshire Council launched a carefully planned attack on the clones of the movie at Wishaw Market.

And the haul would've cost the official video market at least 60,000.

Other countries

Not all of the videos found were of the new Star Wars film, but many were.

There were also copies of films which have only just been released in the UK, and pirate copies of the latest computer games.

Fake copies have already been found in other countries around the world.
