Preston Police are investigating a number of complaints from Grimsargh residents of two verbally abusive and aggressive males going door-to-door selling items.


A further call was received from the Fulwood area about males matching the descriptions as those from the Grimsargh area.

A spokesperson for the Preston Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “One male has been located, identified and spoken to regarding his behaviour. He has been dealt with appropriately.

“Thank you to those who have contacted us about the issue, we would not be able to tackle these issues without the community’s support.”
