Suspected counterfeit sex drugs with a street value of about £140,000 have been seized in police raids.

About 28,000 erectile dysfunction tablets were seized by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and police on Wednesday.

Homes in Albert Street and Moor Lane in Loughborough, Leicestershire, and Frazier Street, in south-east London, were raided.

Two men have been arrested and are being questioned by police.

It is suspected that the haul included about 6,000 counterfeit Cialis tablets, although this has not yet been officially confirmed, the MHRA said.

Danny Lee-Frost, head of operations at MHRA, said: "These raids demonstrate the MHRA's commitment to finding those attempting to deal with falsified medicines.

"It is the role of the MHRA to ensure the public have access to acceptably safe medicines and this action has prevented potentially unsafe medicines from reaching the public."
