Warning from Trading Standards

Warning – Rogue Traders are cold calling in Alton offering roof repairs. On one occasion they cold called on an elderly resident telling them some of their tiles were loose, which they offered to repair for a small amount of money. Then once they were up on the roof they found 'further problems' which would cost more.

If anyone has any information about these traders or requires any advice on doorstep crime they can contact Hampshire County Council's Quick Response Team on 01962 833666, where specially trained officers are on hand to provide assistance.
