ROGUE driveway cleaners are operating in Rugby, according to Warwickshire Trading Standards.

One rogue worker, driving a white transit van, door knocked a resident and offered to pressure wash the drive for £250 with £200 up front.

The trader did the work and then demanded £2000. The customer refused but the trader came back several times until the resident wrote a cheque for the full amount.

The rogue trader was reported to be very persuasive and intimidating.

Trading standards are warning residents to be aware.
