A man captured on CCTV is wanted by police almost 18 months after a Kettering roofing scam which saw the victim lose thousands of pounds.

Detectives investigating the rogue trader incident say the man - wearing shorts and a white top with a stripe on it - is a person of interest.

The incident took place in the summer of 2020 when a man was scammed into handing over thousands of pounds for roofing work that was not completed.
