POLICE have been made aware of three or four men driving around in a car asking for money.

Members of the public have reported a dark green Ford Mondeo in stopping in Pailton and on the Fosse Way towards Brinklow. The men have been asking people for money because they have run out of petrol and have been offering a ring by way of payment.

A spokesman for Rugby Rural North police team said: “The males were described as Eastern European in appearance. Luckily neither of the informants handed over any money and the males drove away. We believe this is some sort of scam and the potentially the rings have no value or possibly stolen.”
