Police are asking North Yorkshire's business owners to be on their guard, after complaints about rogue traders offering to sharpen tools.

Since 5 May, officers have received 13 reports of men with Eastern European accents targeting businesses in places including Thirsk and carrying out substandard work and intimidating members of staff.

Most of the offences have involved men travelling mainly in Mercedes vehicles.

Other vehicles reported include a Volkswagen Passat, Renault van, Citroen and BMW.

In many incidents, the men arrived in two vehicles.

Anyone with information is asked to call North Yorkshire Police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
