BOGUS workers may be operating in the area, police said.

A Hampshire Constabulary spokeswoman said there had been an incident in Wymering on Thursday.

A man in his 80s handed over thousands of pounds to the fraudsters for work.

Now the force has said a company using the name Tradewise Drive and Patios may approach residents and offer to resurface a driveway for a large cash sum.

Police believe a real company name is being used.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police on 101.
