CALLS from a man claiming to need to fix a leak have caused concern for residents.

Police have received reports about phone calls from a man saying he has been told to ring them about fixing leaks.

A Rose Green Road resident contacted police on March 31 after a suspicious call from a man called Dave claiming to be from the council. He said he was ringing about their leaky bathroom, but no such problem had been reported.

Five days earlier a similar call was reported, this time the caller said they had to attend the home in Fernhurst Gardens to fix a leak under a sink, again this was not correct.

The same night two suspicious calls were made to a property in Holly Court. The first from a person saying he was a police officer and another from someone saying he was from the council and would be out to fix their leak.

Anyone who receives such a call should contact Sussex Police on 101.
