CRIMINALS posing as ‘Water Board’ officials are continuing to target elderly and vulnerable people in Grantham.

Police are warning residents to remember the Water Board does not exist and to refuse entry to anyone claiming to be from there.

It comes as a man called at the house of a 91-year-old woman in Harrowby Road at around 2pm on Tuesday, saying he was from the Water Board and needed to enter the property to fix a leak.

The woman refused to let him in and he left the area. He is described as in his 20s and between 5ft 7in and 5ft 10in tall with fair hair, and wearing a fluorescent top with no sleeves.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lincolnshire Police on 0300 111 0300 quoting incident 243 of June 28.
