Police are warning residents in Eynsham about a cold caller selling burglar alarms for £199.

Thames Valley Police said villagers have reported receiving suspicious phone calls, in which the caller claims the alarms are approved by the police.

But West Oxfordshire police area community messaging co-ordinator Danielle Hilton said: “This is not the case and residents are advised to approach a reputable security company if you would like to install a house alarm.”
