Money scammers target businesses

POLICE believe a gang is targeting businesses in the area as part of a money scam.

Gala Bingo was targeted recently when three men struck up a conversation with an employee and asked them to change various bank notes over and over again. The men, aged between 20 and 40, and described as either Eastern European or Asian, left with £170 extra cash.

A similar incident happened at Tesco on Heysham Road last September.
