Warning after cold callers offering roof work target house in Hellesdon
People living in Hellesdon have been warned to be vigilant after cold callers visited a home.
Norfolk County Council Trading Standards said that on Thursday morning two men cold called a property in the Hellesdon area.
They told the residents that they could see loose tiles on their roof, and offered to fix them for a small fee.
They then went onto the homeowner's roof.
While on the roof, a member of the resident's family arrived and told the two men to leave the property. They were seen leaving in a blue Ford Transit van.
