Police in Derbyshire have been taking part in a national campaign to target rogue traders and doorstep sellers.

Officers from across the county joined forces with Derbyshire County Council’s Trading Standards team and the Environment Agency in a day of action to try and identify any rogue traders that might be working in the area.

They dedicated their day to attending incidents of any suspicious activity, speaking to anyone going door-to-door and stopping vehicles.

A total of 57 vehicles were stopped, three were seized and two men were arrested on suspicion of theft of plant equipment.

The action day was held as part of Operation Rogue Trader.
