Police urge Lichfield residents to be on their guard after reports of bogus workman

Police are urging people in Lichfield to be on their guard against bogus workmen. It comes after an incident in Little Aston on Saturday (16th May). A man in a white van approached properties on Forge Lane claiming they needed repairs to tiles on their roof.

He then asked for a small payment. One householder invited him into the property to look at other jobs which might need doing. However, after taking payment from one property, he failed to return to carry out any work.

PCSO Andrea Horsnall, from Staffordshire Police, said:

“Please be on your guard with doorstep traders and do not invite such callers into your house.

“Any suspicious incidents should be reported to Staffordshire Police on 101.”
