Rogue traders warning after West Yorkshire storm damage

Householders across West Yorkshire are being warned to beware of rogue traders in the wake of recent stormy weather.

Trading standards officers said previous years showed there was a rise in doorstep sellers offering "shoddy services" following unsettled weather.

Officers said vulnerable people were often targeted for repairs and jobs such as roofing work and garden clearance.

Trading standards warned rogue traders would be prosecuted.
