Have your say

Police have released details of two male bogus callers who gained entry to a property on the High Street in Swinstead yesterday by claiming to be from Anglian Water.

At approximately 2pm yesterday afternoon the men entered saying they were there to check for damp, and once inside checked the downstairs rooms and asked the occupant if she had change for a ten pound note.

On advising them she had no money, they both left on foot in the direction of Corby Glen, although they may have also had access to a vehicle parked elsewhere in the village which police are keen to trace.

The two males are described as white, between 20 and 30 years old, and were both wearing thick jumpers and a Khaki coloured woolly hat.

Police are asking the public to ensure any elderly relatives and neighbours do not let anybody in until they have confirmed their identity.

If you have any information please contact the police on 101 and quote incident number 245 01/04/14
