For the last three Friday evenings the public have reported a large group of male youths arriving in Henley intimidating members of the public. Incidents occurred around Greys Road, Meadow Road and Reading Road. Several males have been spoken to and enquiries are on-going. If you have any information please call 101 quoting ref: 43180161252
The Henley Area is still being visited by nuisance door to door salesmen, commonly referred to as “Nottingham Knockers”. Recently they were reported to be in Friday Street, Blandy Road and Harpsden Road. The males sell various domestic items at highly inflated prices. The police have been told by the public that they are often intimidated by these males and feel obligated to make a purchase. Police advise the public to continue contacting us and look out for vulnerable neighbours who might be persuaded to make unnecessary purchases.
