RESIDENTS in a Binbrook road have set up a ‘No Cold Calling Zone’ in a bid to keep unwelcome doorstep sellers at bay and cut crime.

Signs, funded by Lincolnshire Trading Standards, have been erected on lamposts around Manor Drive in a partnership involving local residents, Lincolnshire Police and local parish councillors.

Signage warns sellers against knocking on doors to protect against rogue traders and distraction thieves.

“The more information available to all our residents, the greater awareness they will have of bogus callers and distraction burglary offences,” said PCSO Sally Read.
