bringing the community together
Police are reminding residents to be cautious when dealing with cold callers after an incident in Cockfield near Bury St Edmunds.
During the day on Monday 20th March, a man called at a home in Windsor Green stating that he was from an energy company and was there to check the solar panels & needed access to the roof space.
The man had no identification and no equipment with him and was not allowed access to the home.
Residents are urged to always ask for identification from any unexpected callers and do not let them in to your home until you have confirmed that they are genuine.
