I've had the same guy knocking on my door at least three different times asking if he can cut my garden bushes and has given me three different prices for the work. I've told him three times I can do this job myself. The funny thing is he works for the local council but is trying to make some money on the side. Image

There’s been a few burglaries in our neighbourhood, and some have been linked to the door knockers bouncing around during lockdown

The best thing people can do is install a security camera with motion sensor and record

They are so cheap now and most are wi fi enabled so no cables , then at least they will be ' ' ' ' ' caught on camera '

TerenceMealing yes, I think during lockdown lots of people had them installed, and it’s caught a lot of mugshots that are being shared
