Havering police are warning people to be vigilant after hearing reports of bogus callers knocking on doors.
The hoax callers are apparently stating they are from the GP/NHS and doing tests to check for COVID 19 to then gain entry to the property.
As far as the police are aware of this not happening, no one from the NHS is making personal house calls and if in doubt please ask for ID. Then call the place of work they are claiming to be from. Genuine health officials will not mind.
Police are also asking that you do not identify yourself as elderly or vulnerable by placing items on your door handle.
