A WILLINGDON woman has issued a warning after an incident yesterday afternoon.

She said: “BE AWARE a guy came to my door earlier with a large black sports bag, very pushy wanting me to buy random things.

He had followed it with a story of struggling.

He had a northern accent mid to late 20’s.

Police are aware.”

They are the so called Nottingham Knockers. They are so-named because the original scammers hailed from Nottingham and would come knocking door-to-door to trade their wares, the scam has spread across the country, sparking a number of police alerts.
