RESIDENTS are being urged to 'keep safe from fraudsters' as Wrexham car parks are being targeted.

Wrexham Council Trading Standards have received reports that electrical and household items such as TVs are being sold from car parks within the town.

A spokesman said: "Members of the public should be aware that the sale of goods under any unusual circumstances including car parks, vans, the side of the road, the doorstep etc. should be avoided and incidents reported to Police on 101 or Wrexham Council on 01978 298997.

"Items may have been stolen; failed safety tests; be faulty or not as expected, and there is absolutely no recourse should anything go wrong.

"Keep safe from fraudsters, get our alerts."
