A woman has been charged after tiger claws and teeth were found at a property in Sheffield.

Catherine Emberton, aged 29, of Gleadless Road, Heeley, has been charged with three offences under the Control of Trade in Endangered Species Regulations and one offence of fraud.

She will appear at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court on October 2.

Officers from South Yorkshire Police and the UK National Wildlife Crime Unit raided a property in June as part of an investigation into the illegal trade in tiger derivatives on the internet.
