Trading Standards says door to door salesmen have been spotted in Northamptonshire selling overpriced fish.

Doorstep sellers peddling overcharged and wrongly described fish have been reported in Northamptonshire, Trading Standards have warned.

They say residents in the south of the county have been "duped" into buying fish that was incorrectly described and near the end of its use by date.

The doorstep fishmongers also misled unsuspecting customers over the weight of the fish and overcharged them for what they bought.

Tradings Standards advice is not to purchase goods on the doorstep and to only purchase goods from reputable sellers.

Suspicious doorstep callers can be reported to the Doorstep crime Action Network on 0345 23 07 702.
