Worcester Editorial 24th Oct, 2023   0

A WARNING of rogue roofers in Worcester has been issued after two people were arrested on suspicion of fraud after poor quality work was carried out at an address in Tolladine.

The man, aged 34 and woman, aged 33, remain in police custody were arrested on Monday (October 23).

Insp Glenn Jones said: “Rogue traders and doorstep callers may do unnecessary work, or to a poor standard, or the price may rapidly increase.

“They may also use intimidating and aggressive behaviour to demand substantial amounts of cash for shoddy workmanship.

“We want residents to be on their guard and be aware there are individuals using unscrupulous behaviour to carry out substandard work.

“We would also ask the public to be neighbourly and look out for people may be vulnerable in their communities if they feel they can help.”

Police are advising residents not to open their doors to anyone cold calling offering repair work on their home. If in doubt, shut them out.
