Police report

The following is a local policing update for the Acle neighbourhood

Weekly crime summary 14th to 21st August 2015

Residents in Norfolk are being urged to be vigilant following reports of suspected rogue traders operating across the county.

Police have received a number of calls in the last week concerning suspicious men cold calling at addresses posing as reputable landscape gardening firms, offering to shingle driveways for a fee.

Norfolk County Council’s Trading Standards Officers request that residents never agree to buy goods from, or have work done, by someone that calls unannounced at their door, or approaches them on the street.

Often such traders don’t provide full names, trading addresses or contact telephone numbers, resulting in it being virtually impossible to trace them if there are any problems with the work or goods – which is all too often the case.

Anyone with information about suspected rogue traders should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
