A UK police force has seized more than £500,000 of pirate DVDs in a joint operation with FACT (Federation Against Copyright Theft).

More than 100,000 illegally-copied films, including Memoirs of a Geisha, The Chronicles Of Narnia and Munich, were found when Kent Police raided a makeshift factory in Burnt Oak, North-West London and a related facility in Peckham, South-East London.

They also found computers and more than 200 DVD burners capable of manufacturing over 20,000 DVDs per day.

Also seized were seven printers for producing labels and covers as well as thousands of blank DVDs and plastic cases.

The raids were part of the anti-counterfeiting Operation Century.Three Chinese men were arrested and have been taken to police stations in London and Kent for further questioning.
