Trading Standards warn of rogue traders in Cornwall

Trading Standards have warned people about an increase of suspected rogue traders in Cornwall.

Officers said they usually dealt with about 70 cases a year, but that they had seen a recent increase in incidents with summer approaching.

They said vulnerable people were often targeted for repairs and jobs such as roofing, guttering and garden work.

Cornwall Trading Standards said a warning sign was "anyone who knocks on your door when you haven't rung them".
