Humberside Police is warning businesses in the isle to be aware of a possible money changing scam.

The warning comes after an incident in Scunthorpe where two women entered a store and handed over hand over £200 asking for it to be changed into £10 notes. The owner refused and the women left.

In other parts of the country this has been used as a method of distracting shop workers while other people commit theft.
