Firstly we have received reports of a man cold calling in the Shipdam area offering to undertake driveway and hard landscaping work.  The man usually carries postcards detailing their 'services' and has been seen to be using a yellow tipper truck and a white minibus.

In some reports when residents have declined the offer of work the man has become verbally aggressive.

Secondly we have had further reports of doorstep cold callers trying to sell household cleaning products.  Today two men carrying large bags were seen in the Kenninghall area.
