POLICE have warned residents to beware rogue traders in Highcliffe with reports of a van-load of men offering to work for cash.

Dorset officers said about six males in a white Ford Transit with ladders on its roof have been approaching residents to perform roof and guttering work for cash in hand.

On some occasions they began work without consulting residents, or tried to pressure them into accepting their services, Dorset Police said in a Facebook post today (Thursday).
