Beware: it’s a con

POLICE are on the hunt for a man who looks like Peter Kay, following a con trick by a rogue trader.

A Bovingdon resident refused to let the green-trousered man into his house when he claimed to be offering a tree root-cutting service at around 10.30am on December 9.

Half an hour earlier, a man described as ‘podgy’ and wearing blue overalls visited an elderly couple at Highfield Lane, Hemel Hempstead.

The man offered the same service and left with £100 after doing no work. Report information on 0845 33 00 222.
