Islanders in Jersey are being warned not to give their personal details to phone scammers.

Jersey telecommunications company JT has had reports of automated calls and callers asking for personal details.

JT's Director of Corporate Affairs, Daragh McDermott, said people needed to hang up immediately and avoid ringing the numbers back.

He said JT Global did its best to protect people from the scams but it was difficult.

He said: "There are up to a million numbers available and we cannot just block people from calling these numbers.

"What we can do is urge people when they receive suspicious calls to hang up immediately."
