A number of people in the village of HAIL WESTON have recently been visited by a man claiming that he is going to be doing some tree cutting at a near-by property and is ‘apologising in advance’ for the noise he was going to be making. In all cases, no tree cutting followed, so it seems possible or even likely that this has been a scam designed to discover whether there was anyone in, with a view to carrying out a burglary.
