Rogue Gardener

The family of an elderly local resident, who suffers from dementia, has told us about a man claiming to have been sent round by a relative to do some gardening. He has pulled the same trick on two occasions when he has taken money without doing any work.

From what they can gather, the man is short and dark haired, speaking with an Irish accent. The first time he called he was using a former British Gas van; the second time he was in a white van.

If you get a visit of this kind take care both for yourself and any vulnerable neighbours. If you are concerned, phone the Police on 101 and tell them what is happening.
