It comes after a resident from the town contacted Norfolk Trading Standards to report that people were out on the streets in Wymondham attempting to sell funeral plans on the doorstep.

A Norfolk County Council spokesman said: 'Our Trading Standards officers are keen to hear about other similar sightings in communities around Norfolk and would ask people to report them to our partners, Citizens Advice consumer helpline on 03454 04 05 06.

'Our advice to people is to always be cautious of unexpected callers - particularly if they are claiming to offer a service. But whoever comes to your door uninvited, always ask to see their ID and never let anyone inside your home until you are satisfied they are who they say they are.'
