Cheshire Police Alert - Door to Door Sales

Yesterday (6th April) there were youths going door to door selling cleaning products such as dusters, dish cloths etc from a holdall. Today (7th) they returned.

Police located three of them in Clutton and Tiverton and seized their goods and will be reporting them for summons.

The practise of these youths coming into our community often from far away is not lawful.

To sell door to door a 'Peddlers Licence' is required. They are in possession of "Hawkers Licences" which look genuine and official but they are not!

If you are approached by anyone selling cleaning products at your front door please decline and call the police at the time on 101. If possible a description would be helpful.

Thank you for your assistance

Again in those days, there was the...
