Bridport Police issued a warning after a report of some cold callers in Broadwindsor, Saturday afternoon, offering gardening services: two males in a van with ladders on the roof, calling at elderly residents’ properties.
If you are in the area, please be vigilant, especially around possible vulnerable neighbours and if you feel there is anything suspicious to report, please contact us on 101.
They advise anyone to refuse any work or entry to property to anyone calling, if you are not willing to accept any services. If any callers refuse to leave or become aggressive, please call the Police immediately. Please also use any door chains available to prevent callers from being able to get a look into your property, or from being able to push their way in.
