Latest 15 Press Releases at Durham County Council
  • Stubbing out illegal tobacco trade
    Thousands of suspected fake cigarettes were seized in a raid in County Durham.Trading Standards officers at Durham County Council and police searched two premises in the Shildon area on Thursday (October 2) in connection with cigarettes and rolling tobacco, which were believed to be either smuggled or counterfeit.As a result two arrests were made and 122 pouches of rolling tobacco and 4,000 cigarettes were seized. The raid was the latest in a series of operations across the county aimed at tackling the supply of illicit tobacco carried out by the council’s specialist team.Joanne Waller, head of environment, health and consumer protection at Durham County Council, said: “Thanks to a wealth of intelligence from the public and honest traders we have really stepped up our action against the trade of suspected illegal tobacco.  “This type of activity not only undermines the work of the stop smoking services but also has a significant impact on honest local businesses. There is also much evidence to suggest that it increases availability and supply to young people to start smoking and has links to other criminal activity.“Anyone found guilty of supplying counterfeit tobacco could face up to 10 years in jail and unlimited fines and their assets may be seized.“Stemming the supply of cheap and illicit tobacco is an essential tool in our fight to reduce smoking harm and achieve our vision of a smoke free future for our children.”Information about illegal tobacco can be reported in confidence to Durham County Council’s Trading Standards on 03000 261016 or by emailing tobacco@durham.gov.uk.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Jurassic World Evolution Review: Life Finds A Way

    Whether you're reminded of vicious raptors hunting terrified children, placid Brachiosaurus strolling verdant hills, or a scientist reaching elbow-deep into a mound of Triceratops dung, the words "Jurassic Park" can evoke some pretty powerful memories. Jurassic World Evolution reinforces these associations with its take on dino-park management, and all the good and bad that comes with such a brazen endeavor. It can be a bit clumsy at times, but Evolution ultimately finds a comfortable middle ground between establishing deep mechanics and maintaining accessibility for the average dino enthusiast.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Mario Tennis Aces Review In Progress: Aim High

    When the credits rolled on Mario Tennis Aces' Adventure Mode, I vowed to never again laugh at a tennis player having an ugly meltdown on the court. I had felt the volcanic surge of adrenaline that comes when a rally has gone too long. I knew the sense of high alert while trying to suss out which corner of the court an opponent is going to attack next. I have spliced and invented new curse words to mutter when a ball goes out of bounds. Off-beat stages and creative use of characters from the Marioverse ensure that you'll never lose sight of simply having fun, but don't let the adorable exterior trick you; Aces takes its unorthodox tennis very seriously.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Unravel 2 Review: Partners In Twine

    With its warm, rustic setting, and an instantly endearing protagonist, the first Unravel had the outward appearance of a happily nostalgic adventure. That initial fuzzy feeling, however, gave way to a series of frustrating puzzles and a story that took some unexpectedly dark turns. In the game's final hours, the poor little hero Yarny was left all alone in a hostile world. What a relief it is to see him in a better place in Unravel Two, the sequel that's notably comforting thanks to the introduction of a second yarnling. Once they meet, Yarny and his new friend immediately hit it off and set out on a new adventure.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Moonlighter Review: Open For Business

    Dulcet tones and somber notes played in time represent the curious duality of Moonlight. It is, at once, a heroic adventure and the name of the subdued storefront that you alone run. Centered in the heart of a once-bustling town, all the greats, the audacious plunderers of dungeons that were sealed long ago, have died out. The markets and the merchants of your hamlet have all but vanished alongside them. Always looking to the horizon, you see what could be--in both yourself and the town--and set out to claim your glory and bring riches back from the depths of dangerous dungeons.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Sushi Striker: The Way Of Sushido Review - Cartoon Cuisine Combat

    Like many of Nintendo's most memorable video games, Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido takes a seemingly mundane fixture of life and extrapolates it into a novel gameplay idea. In this case, co-developer Indieszero (Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, NES Remix) has built an action-puzzle game around conveyor-belt sushi, which serves as a vehicle for its match-three-style duels. And thanks to a knowingly zany presentation and regular stream of new mechanics, Sushi Striker is a fun and consuming puzzler unlike anything else currently on Switch, despite a few niggling issues.

  • Game Spot Reviews: West Of Loathing Review: The Wild Bunch

    West of Loathing is not as simple as its art style might lead you to believe. Its black and white color palette, stick-figure characters, and crude hand-drawn art might appear to be devoid of personality. But in practice, its visual simplicity acts as a malleable canvas for its imagination to run away with reckless abandon. West of Loathing is an involved Western adventure game/RPG hybrid that embraces absolute absurdity with mechanical flexibility and comedic personality, making role-playing in its monochromatic old West thoroughly entertaining.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Onrush Review: Push It To The Limit

    Calling Onrush a racing game is a tad reductive and maybe even a little disingenuous. Sure, there are two- and four-wheeled vehicles careening around a track with reckless abandon. But with no finishing lines in sight, achieving victory in Onrush is about much more than simply seeing who can reach a chequered flag first. This bold idea for an arcade racing game comes from a new studio formed out of the remnants of Evolution Studios. It's a curious transmogrification of various genres and styles, taking elements from the high-octane takedowns of Burnout, the multi-vehicle chaos of Evolution's MotorStorm, and the class-based competitive action of a hero shooter like Overwatch.

  • Game Spot Reviews: BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle Review - The Tag Team Dream

    2D anime fighters like the BlazBlue series are often intimidating for their elaborate movesets and demand for precise execution. However, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle breaks from tradition by simplifying its gameplay systems, and bringing in characters from three other franchises to join the fight. By no means does the simplification make Cross Tag shallow--the dynamic tag system and the clever ways you can mix mechanics are where Cross Tag shines. Factor in the charm of these distinct worlds and you'll have plenty of reasons to consider this fast, flashy, and endearing fighter.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Golem Review: Hidden In Plain Sight

    Golem often feels at odds with itself. This gorgeous puzzle-filled adventure successfully wraps you in a mystical world, where bright hues and cheerful melodies set the mood. But beneath this inviting exterior lie disjointed challenges that no amount of whimsy can sugarcoat. Even with smart mechanics that are introduced at a sensible pace, Golem's rhythm is regularly disturbed by jarring difficulty spikes and obtuse solutions.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Yoku’s Island Express Review: A Breath of Fresh Air

    Metroid-style platformers have become more common recently, which makes standing out from the pack a daunting task for new games in that style. Yoku’s Island Express overcomes this hurdle by creatively combining both Metroid-style exploration and pinball mechanics into one unique product. This combination sounds unusual at first, but the final result is a charming, delightful, and wonderfully satisfying hybrid.
