Cold calling warning

SUSSEX Police have issued a warning after seeing an increase in tradesman cold-calling at residents’ doors in the district.

PC Jon Walker, from Horsham Neighbourhood Policing Team, told the County Times: “These people have been telling occupiers that there driveway is in need of urgent repair or that their roof is going to collapse if urgent work is not carried out when there is no sign that this is the case.

People are being asked to be mindful that if you have not called someone in to fix something then don’t let them into or onto your premises and call the police on 0845 60 70 999.”
