Have your say
Seems to be a lot of these crimes recently. Everyone in the community needs to be more vigilant for our eldery living among us.
These people are nothing but scum.
it is always a concern about our elderly and vulnerable that may unwittingly allow someone in their home or answer the door to strangers even after publicity for them not too I donr know if this lady in question was in or out but PLEASE dont divulge to anyone except trusted friends or familt if you are going to be away or out I was casually talking to a lady on Monday who while chatting told me she was just at the property because the owner was in hosptial and she was caring for the cat now I could have been sone unscrupulous thief or in turn passed that info to someone who was so take care what info you pass on
