Holiday makers and returning travelers are being reminded about what they can and cannot bring back to the UK by Border Force to avoid the risk of losing all of their goods. Travelers are often unaware that if they bring in more duty-free from outside the EU and fail to declare it, Border Force can seize all of their goods and not just those in excess of their allowance. Equally, if Border Force is satisfied that EU duty-paid goods are for a commercial purpose, officers can seize all your goods. The goods seized may include any luggage or vehicle used to transport them so Border Force's message for summer travelers is - 'Don't Risk It All'
