Rogue trader warning in Cam
FRESH warnings about rogue traders have been issued by police after a suspicious incident in Cam on Thursday.
At around 1pm, a Cam Green resident was visited by a man claiming to be from the Highways Department, offering to gravel her drive for £60.
The man then claimed he didn't have enough gravel to finish the job and demanded more cash. He said it would cost £300 more for materials and became abusive and intimidating when the resident refused to pay-up.
After the man left the premises the police were called as it was feared he would return.
