Important Message to Residents

The Police have alerted the Council to nuisance/scam telephone calls. It appears that they are callers from the London area who claim to represent the Metropolitan Police or other police forces. They tell their victims that they have arrested someone for using their credit or debit card fraudulently then persuade the victim to help them with their investigation by asking them to remove money from their accounts or buy expensive items for them to pick up. Please be aware of this unlawful activity and do not be taken in by the caller.

A further matter relates to a recent attempted burglary in Spencer Drive. Make sure you keep your property well secured especially when your home is unoccupied. Lock doors and windows making sure that it is not easy for a burglar to gain unlawful access.
