I received the following note from Trading Standards re a cold caller in our area:

“We received a report on 08/02/2016 of a cold caller who was operating in LS16 7EX which is in a cold calling control zone. Male described as white, medium to tall with at least 1 more person in a large white vehicle with premier roofing on the side. The resident informed him that he was in a zone but he dismissed it by claiming to have a special licence.”

Nobody has a special licence to carry out cold calling on the doorstep.
