Police have issued a warning about scam letters claiming to be from Severn Trent after an elderly woman on Norwich Gardens received one.

PC Andrea Gummer said: “The letter requests the resident to make contact with them when they are available so that an engineer can attend to fix a leak to a pipe into their house.

“The letter sounds convincing enough and is obviously showing the lengths that bogus callers will go to in order to gain access to your home. Trading standards have been informed by the police and we will continue to monitor like methods.”

Call 03456 041 655 to alert Severn Trent or 101 for the police.
