Beware of bogus charity caller

POLICE are warning people to beware of a bogus caller trying to get people to hand over £145.

Officers in Hebden Bridge and Todmorden said they have had reports of the man ringing people, claiming he is collecting on behalf of a charity to help community policing. He has then asked for money to support his charity.

When the man has been challenged and asked to send documentation for his request in the post, he has then put the phone down.

Anyone who is called by the man should call police via 101.
