Police and Trading Standards personnel have arrested a man today in connection with these offences.
The following message received from our local Police officer……
A number of people have been approached at their doors, particularly the elderly, by a very chatty male offering to carry out work, such as roofing, guttering, gardening.
People are being persuaded to hand over money as deposits or to buy building materials.
The man is never to be seen again!
So please look out for suspicious people touting for work with elderly neighbours.
A blue Volvo V70 estate with a roof rack has been seen in the areas affected.
