Police warning about bogus callers

Officers have received reports of incidents in the Norwich, Blakeney, Great Yarmouth, Horning, Poringland and Costessey areas. In each case a man has knocked at the door claiming to be there to either read a gas or electricity meter, or to check the boiler.

 Police are reminding householders to be vigilant when dealing with cold callers and offer the following advice:

 Close and lock the back door before answering the front door.

  • Use a spy hole or window to look at the caller before answering the door.
  • If you do not recognise the caller, speak to them through the closed door.
  • If the caller is selling something or offering work on your home, tell them you are not interested and ask them to leave.
  • If they do not leave or you need assistance- call the police.
  • If the caller is valid, always ask for proof of identity. Phone the company or organisation the caller claims to be from while the caller waits outside.
  • Tell someone you trust about the uninvited callers to your home.
  • If necessary, report it to police with a description of the people involved and details of their vehicle if possible.

To report suspicious activity call Norfolk Constabulary on 101. In an emergency always dial 999.

Works at Postwick Junction

Restrictions will be in place from 8pm to 6am on the Postwick junction north-west roundabout from tonight for the next three nights (Thursday to Saturday) to allow completion of the segregated left-turn lane.

These restrictions will mainly affect traffic heading towards Yarmouth Road, Thorpe St Andrew. This traffic will be unable to get through the roundabout to Yarmouth Road and will instead have to use the A47 and go via either the A146 Trowse junction, or the A140 Harford junction and Norwich Ring Road.

Tonight (Thurs) the restrictions are to allow removal of the protective barriers. This work will take several hours to complete, and restrictions will be lifted by 6am tomorrow (Fri) morning at the latest.

On Friday night the restrictions will be imposed to allow surfacing, and again on Saturday night for lane marking. On each night the restrictions will be lifted as soon as possible, but by 6am at the latest.

Police report

Fake Irish notes

Police are warning retailers to be vigilant after reports of fake Irish notes being used in stores across the county.

There have been a number of reports today (Wednesday 31 August 2016) of fake Irish £20 and £50 notes being handed over at stores in the North Norfolk, Kings Lynn and Great Yarmouth areas.

Retailers are being urged to be vigilant and to take crime prevention measures, such as using a UV light or a testing pen which will indicate whether a note is genuine.
