Current Alerts

Residents have expressed concerns in reference to the authenticity of individuals going to household addresses claiming to be there to read the meters.

If unsure always ask the person to provide an ID card to verify the details with your gas/water/electricity provider. Genuine company employees have no problems waiting outside for the couple of minutes it takes to do this, as they are well aware that, on occasion, this is used as an excuse to enter vulnerable people home addresses for distraction burglaries.

Remember, if you are still not happy, you do not have to let anyone in your home and can contact Police on the 101 number to report any suspicious incidents.
