On Thursday the 10th of June a Mercedes rigid tipper van (White cab with blue rear) has approached businesses on the Brackmills Industrial estate asking for scrap metal. The driver has given varying accounts that they are working at different premises on the estate (none of which are true) in order to try and obtain scrap metal under false pretences.
The driver was dressed in high vis work clothes and was wearing a hard hat. Please be mindful of this vehicle/driver and the tactics they will use in order to obtain scrap metal.
