THE group known as the 'Nottingham knockers' have been in the area of St peters, Worcester and Kempsey.

The group are house to house sales persons who generally do not have peddler licenses to sell on the street. Their style of selling can be pushy and aggressive.

Police advise that the public call 101 if these salesman are seen in your area and to give the call taker their description and direction of travel.

These salesman usually come from outside the area and sell household items that they carry around with them in large holdalls.

In January, police reminded home-owners not to buy anything from door to door salesman, after Droitwich residents who had been targeted, reported that some salesman had used pressuring and intimidating tactics.
