Trading Standards officers are warning residents to be wary of cold callers offering to carry out work on their roof or gutters.
It comes after an incident this afternoon in which three men were reported for cold calling neighbours in Huyton and telling them they needed repairs carrying out.
The three men are travelling in a white transit van with a ladder on the roof. They claim to be from Direct Roofing Wallasey or N&R Roofing but have no business cards or paperwork.
The first man is described as tall, in his forties with red hair and wearing a hi-vis vest. The second is in his twenties with dark hair and the third is in his forties with fair hair and glasses. The three spoke with Irish accents.
Knowsley Council’s Trading Standards team is investigating the incident and is advising residents not to agree to any work being carried out by cold callers.
If you have any concerns, you should ring Consumer Advice on 03454 040506.
