Members of the public are invited to attend an event designed to clamp down on fraud and scams.

PCSO Karen Davey, from the St Neots neighbourhood policing team, has been running a series of events at banks in the town including Barclays, Lloyds, Natwest and Santander.

The next event is due to take place on September 26 at Barclays, in High Street, between 9.30am and 12pm.

PCSO Davey will be on hand to answer questions alongside community safety officer Clare Darbyshire and staff from the bank.

PCSO Davey said: "We are working in partnership with the banks to safeguard people's finances and give them the confidence they need to deal with any unwanted calls and texts they receive.
