Watch out for bogus workmen in Portsmouth, police have warned

Police investigate links between eight burglaries in Portsmouth and Fareham

Have your say

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.
