A premises licence at a King's Lynn shop has been revoked, just a day after a trading standards operation found illegal cigarettes at the store.
Two hundred and fifty cigarettes and around 150g of rolling tobacco were found at Kubus East European Market on London Road during the raid on Thursday, January 12.
The operation came the day before the shop went before West Norfolk Council's licensing committee yesterday for a licence review.
The decision by the licensing sub-committee stated that it was revoking the licence 'on the basis that it considers that activities undertaken at the licensed premises undermine the principal statutory objection of preventing crime and disorder'.
The store can appeal against the decision to the magistrates' court.
