Bassetlaw residents are being asked to be wary after reports of a phishing scam in the area.

A lady with an Indian accent has called two members of the public this morning (Monday 16th February) purporting to be from Bassetlaw Council and asking if they have had an accident and requesting personal details.

The council will never cold call members of the public and ask for personal details over the phone.

Members of the public can report any suspicious to Notts Police on 101.
