Police have issued a warning about giving out your pin number or other personal details following a spate of incidents in the county.

Detectives are urging people not to disclose the information after several incidents across the county of telephone callers – claiming to be from the police or the banks – asking for these details.

Detective Inspector Dave Harley said: “Never give out your details in any circumstances.

“The police and banks would never ask anyone for these details over the phone or arrange couriers to be sent out to collect allegedly compromised bank cards.

“And banks will never request these details online. If you have any concerns, ignore the call or message and contact your bank or report the matter to us on 101.”
