Late night caller-scam

Some residents have reported a man ringing their doors late at night (near midnight) asking for money to feed a gas/electricity meter. He says that he has a newborn child and works for a London hospital. 

The police have reported that this is without doubt a scam. The advice is that gas key meters will always have an emergency facility so the gas could wait until daytime.

Residents can call police down for incidents like this on 101 or 999 if you think it’s a matter of urgency.

If anyone has any images from their RING or CCTV please feel to share and I will forward to the police.

Also, the graffiti on the garage door outside Barnstaple House has been reported to the Council and should be removed shortly.
