PC Kevin Bennett is advising residents to be vigilant and check that all cold callers are from legitimate companies.

He said: "Community messaging went out yesterday warning people to be vigilant with any door to door salesman. If necessary, leave them standing at the door step while you check out their details. A legitimate caller will not object."
