POLICE are warning people to beware of a bogus caller trying to get people to hand over £145.

Officers in Todmorden and Hebden Bridge say they have had reports of the man ringing people, claiming he is collecting on behalf of a charity to help community policing and asking for the cash to support his charity.

When challenged and asked to send documentation for his request in the post, the man hung up. Anyone who is called by the man should call police via 101.
