People in Gloucestershire are being warned to watch out for cold callers offering bogus council tax refunds. Some residents in Tewkesbury have been targeted by scammers claiming they're entitled to a £2,000 rebate on council tax bills in exchange for a payment.

The borough council says it's had several calls from pensioners who are worried about the calls. Police in the town say they hope neighbours will pass on the warning.
