Community Police notice

We have just received the following message from Laura Wallace our Community Police Officer:
On the 07/07/21 in The Common, residents have intercepted possible pressure trading towards an elderly resident- Roofing/guttering cleaning services.
Can you please mention possible rogue trading offences particularly around our vulnerable residents.
The fact that residents intervened in this instance speaks volumes about your community looking out for one another.
