This e-fit has been released by police who are issuing a warning and appeal for information after a number of fraud incidents.

The scam involves a man who has attempted to talk residents into giving him cash so he can take delivery of a sofa.

In one case a resident has parted with £40.

Eight incidents have been recorded over the last week, seven in Crowland and one in Spalding.

In each case, a man has called at the address with a story about needing to borrow cash in order to pay for a sofa that has just been delivered.

Police are working to identify the man concerned and have worked with a victim to come up with an e-fit.

Officers are urging anyone with information to call Lincolnshire police on 101 and quote incident 294 of 31 August.
