Police urge public to check workers' ID

Police in the south of the Island are urging residents to ask anyone claiming to be Government workers to ask for ID if they seek access to a property.

The warning comes following a report of two people gaining entry to a home during the daytime on Friday after saying they were from a local government department.

Officers are investigating the incident, but are warning those in the area not to let anyone they don't know into their homes, regardless of how nice or genuine they come across.

Government workers will always carry identification.
