Police have issued a warning after a cold caller claimed to be working for Horsham District Council.

The man used the name ‘Liam Phillips’ when he offered a Pulborough resident grants from the council for home insulation over the phone on Friday (December 18).

The district council is not working with any company offering insulation and does not have general grants for the service.

Police urged people not to let anyone claiming they are offering this service in association with Horsham District Council gain entry inside their property and to make friends, neighbours and family members aware.
