POLICE have issued a warning after reports the notorious cold caller group, dubbed the ‘Nottingham Knockers’, were seen in a Vale village.

The cold callers were seen going door-to-door in Cropthorne today (Friday).

The group are known for using persistent and pressurising sales tactics for cleaning products.

After previous sightings of the group in the past year, West Mercia Police issued a warning urging residents not to part with any money for products they don’t need, or products of poor quality, if one of the sellers knocks on their door.




Residents were also advised to use precautionary measures such as a door chain and to ignore callers if they are unsure who it may be.

To sell on the doorstep a valid pedlars certificate is required, not just ID with the sellers photo on.


Anyone who receives a knock at the door from the ‘Nottingham Knockers’ is urged not to answer it and instead call West Mercia Police on 101.
