The fight against rogue traders
Cheshire Police say people are still accepting work from rogue traders who knock on their door, posing as builders offering to do work.
This week the force has teamed up with Trading Standards Officers to try and stop the problem after seeing an increase in cold callers offering dodgy work.
Sergeant Richie Watts from Cheshire Police has been telling Heart that people need to know their rights: "Say no, don't allow the person access to your address.
"If you believe there is something suspicious about them obviously call the police, and request identification at all times."
