Watchdogs are warning people to be on their guard after Norfolk police received reports of a cold caller in the south Norwich area offering 'Le Creuset' cookware.

The cold caller was reported to speak with a foreign accent and to be driving a saloon car with foreign number plates.

Officers at Norfolk Trading Standards warned the items offered were likely to be poor quality counterfeits of the genuine items.

Norfolk Trading Standards officers advise people never to deal with doorstep cold callers and to never be pressurised into buying on the doorstep no matter what claims are made about the items.

They said it is possible this cold caller may move on to other parts of Norfolk.
