Bogus official warning

Sergeant Joyce has been on the phone:

There is a man active in the Kensington area at the moment that I would like to warn readers about. He is aged about 45, round face, black bobble hat, wearing a yellow high–visibility jacket (like workmen wear) and on at least one occasion was carrying a length of electric cable with him.

He is pretending to be an electrician and his two cover stories so far have been that he has come to check the sockets and that he needs to look at the fusebox because he fears it is blowing fuses in other people’s houses.

He does not carry out i/d

A 91 year old lady in Minto Close was robbed by him this week when she let him in and then went to make him a cup of tea.

He has been operating in Holt Road area and Crossfields estate and is targeting mainly social housing.

Please spread the word.

There's a flaming great tory boy of a Lib Dem who has also been seen around Kensington masquerading as a politician. He is known to like hanging around in the shadows. He used to have several helpers in the area who would try and distract you with non-stories whilst he spouted drivel but they have been seen off by a concerted effort by the local community. Only he remains. If you see this man, be careful. He is known to be idiotic and may try and persuade you he actually knows what he is going on about.
