Lincolnshire Trading Standards is investigating after reports of a company touting for business by purporting to be working for the county’s highways team. The company is allegedly misleading people into believing they are from ‘highways’ and offering to carry out resurfacing work such as tarmacking or repairing potholes.
Please take extra care if you are looking to have tarmacking or resurfacing work done. The contractors working on behalf of Lincolnshire County Council drive clearly identifiable, liveried vehicles, and a highways officer, or one of our contractors, would never approach you out of the blue and offer to do work.
If you think a business has broken the law or acted unfairly, you can report them to Trading Standards through the Citizens Advice Consumer Service. Visit www.citizensadvice.org.uk or call the consumer helpline on 0808 223 1133.
