A SUSPICIOUS incident near Worcester has been reported to the police after two men called at a home claiming to be from the fire service.

Two men in a "non-descript dark coloured van" pulled on to the driveway of a rural dwelling in Stonehall Common, Kempsey, on Wednesday, June 11 and knocked at the door.

They told the home owner that they were from the fire brigade and wanted to come into the house to do some checks.

They were not admitted to the main part of the property and subsequent checks by the owner with Fire Service found the callers were bogus.
