BERNESLAI Homes has warned its tenants to be on the lookout for visits from fake workmen after a recent incident in Staincross.

The property management company says it has received reports of bogus workmen turning up to homes claiming to work for the business.

Berneslai says the workmen have not turned up in a Berneslai Homes vehicle or had Berneslai Homes ID Badges.

The company has warned residents to be on the lookout for a silver Vauxhall people carrier with ladders on top.

A spokesperson said: "For your own safety always remember to ask to see our operatives’ and staff’s ID before you let them into your home. If you are unsure please phone us on 01226 787878 and never let anyone into your home if you are not sure."
