Police hunt builders who conned OAP out of cash

Have your say

Police are hunting bogus builders who conned a pensioner out of hundreds of pounds for work they never carried out.

The conmen struck at the home of an 84-year-old man on Langar Lane, Chesterfield, on Friday afternoon - charging him hundreds of pounds for supposed repairs to his roof and re-pointing they told him he needed.

The following day one of the men returned and asked for more cash, claiming they had not charged enough the day before.
