A WARNING about "Nottingham Knockers" in Worcester has been issued by a neighbourhood watch Facebook group.

West Mercia Neighbourhood Watch posted on Facebook on November 8: “They are working Worcester today.

“We are aware that Nottingham Knockers have been operating in the Wyre Forest and Droitwich Area again. So, they are probably across the West Mercia Area.”

Nottingham Knockers is the colloquial name given to groups of doorstep callers who offer household products for sale.

According to the neighbourhood watch group’s post, these doorstep callers have changed their story from being ex-criminals on a program, to being ex-servicemen, and are trying to "pull at people’s heart strings with it being Remembrance Sunday this weekend."

The post went on: “Yesterday, they visited several homes and got aggressive. Two men were reported as intoxicated and aggressive.

“Some of these incidents had been reported to the police…It is always important to report this activity.

“Do not answer your door to them.

“Do tell your neighbours, friends and family about these men.

“Do call the police to make a report.”

If you have any footage or know anything about this, call the police on 101 and quote reference number 222s081119.
