Another Doncaster pensioner has fallen victim to a bogus caller, with police repeating their warning: If you’re not sure, don’t open the door.

A man called at a house on Stonehill Rise in Scawthorpe on Friday morning, claiming to be from the gas board and was let into the property by the 92-year-old woman occupant.

The man looked under the pensioner’s sink and then went upstairs, leaving the woman in her living room. The woman heard banging and went to investigate before the man ushered her back downstairs.
