Police have warned Fareham residents about a man claiming to be an Amazon driver and asking about parcel deliveries.

These suspicious incidents are being investigated by officers and any further incidents should be reported, according to a spokesman from Hampshire Constabulary.

He said: ‘Please be reassured that we are following up these reports to establish the circumstances, but in the meantime this is a timely reminder to encourage people to continue reporting suspicious incidents to us, and to read up on the crime prevention advice on our website to keep yourself safer.

‘In the majority of cases, people will knock on your door for a legitimate reason. However, if you’re ever concerned, do not let the person enter your home, close the door and give us a call on 101 so we can take a look at what’s happened.

‘We would like to thank those members of the community who have been bringing suspicious incidents to our attention. If something doesn’t feel right, then report it.’
