Dear UK Border Agency,
I understand that seized tobacco is shredded or pulped and then sent to a power station to burn to supply the national grid.
I would like to know if:
1. The packaging and packets are shredded along with any filter tips.
2. Where the shredded products are sent.
3. Would the shredded products be capable of being transformed back to a smokeable product i.e. a cigarette or plain tobacco.
