A door-to-door salesman who sold counterfeit and pornographic DVDs has been jailed.

Jin Xue, 38, from North London, was sentenced to 92 days imprisonment at Bedford Magistrates' Court on Friday.

He had pleaded guilty when he first appeared before magistrates last month and had been remanded in custody for sentencing.

The court heard Xue was first arrested in Huntingdon in January while attempting to sell DVDs door-to-door. In February he was arrested in Biggleswade again selling counterfeit and pornographic DVDs.

Sentencing Xue, district judge Mr Leigh-Smith said that although he had given Xue credit for his early guilty pleas, the offences were so serious that a custodial sentence was justified.

The charges against Xue were brought jointly by Bedfordshire County Council and Cambridgeshire County Council.
