Rogue trader warning
Police are asking residents to be on their guard for rogue traders following an incident that happened in Hailsham recently. A man called at the house of an elderly lady in Sussex Avenue and offered to cut the garden hedge for £250. He also asked to go upstairs in the house – but this was refused and the man left.Rogue traders are callous individuals who often target the most vulnerable and elderly in our communities.Police advice is never, ever agree to works or services offered by doorstep callers who arrive unannounced. We would ask relatives, friends and neighbours of vulnerable or elderly people to keep an eye on them to ensure that they do not fall victim to criminals, and to report any suspicious behaviour immediately by emailing email@example.com or calling 101.
