Bottesford NHW Alert: Suspicious Cold Caller

Wednesday 12 April 12.30pm - reported to Harby NHW:

Suspicious white van with ladders on its roof in Watson's Lane, Harby . Male had black hair and a bit of a beard.

Told householder that he had called before and replaced some loose roof tiles for her. He said one on the back needed replacing. The householder said that as far as she was aware, he had not called before, and the property was council owned so they would contact the council. The caller said there was no need to call the council as he would contact them AFTER the  the work was done. He then asked if he could use the toilet. The householder said the bathroom was being used by a family member. The man also called at a second property but no report of what happened there.

Unfortunately no vehicle registration was obtained.

Please remain vigilant and do not encourage cold callers or let them in to your property.
