A third cold calling control zone has been launched in Rodley.

Streets in this latest zone include Hawthorne Grove, Hawthorne Drive, Brookfield Avenue, Brookfield Court and Brookfield Gardens.

David Lodge, head of West Yorkshire Trading Standards, said: “The simplest way of avoiding problems is to never deal on the doorstep. Too many people still fall victim to doorstep conmen by being too trusting or not wanting to appear rude. A polite but firm statement that you never deal on the doorstep is the best advice I can give.”

Councillors Andrew Carter, Amanda Carter and Rod Wood used their funding to pay for the zone.
