Two people have received a summons to court following reports of men knocking on doors and trying to sell cleaning products.

Police said they have received reports of men knocking on people’s doors and claiming to be either ex-prisoners or out-of-work.

They then tell the victim they need money or attempt to sell cleaning products.

Police said they had taken calls from the Brundall and Coltishall areas in the Norfolk Broads.

Chief superintendent Mike Fawcett said: “Please remember you do not have to open your door to cold callers.

“If they are selling something or offering to do any work on your house or garden, tell them you are not interested and ask them to leave.

“If they persist tell them you will call the police and call us on 999.”

Police said two men in their 20s have been reported for Pedlars Act offences after being interviewed at the roadside by officers.
