We are warning residents to be aware of a potential fraudster operating in Chesterfield.
We have received reports from residents that they have been approached by a man in a plain white van claiming to be from Nottinghamshire County Council offering to cut down trees at homes in Chesterfield.
If you are approached by someone claiming to be a council employee, always ask for ID.
If you are approached by a bogus operator, you should report it to Derbyshire Constabulary on the non-emergency number, 101.
