One resident said, "I would like people to keep an eye on elderly neighbours this Christmas. I've just had to intervene when three men turned up at my neighbours house to install loft insulation. My neighbour has dementia and normally her daughter would be there. It turns out they didn't have permission from the landlord to be there and had already stripped the loft of insulation. I'm worried that although these men were happy to leave when they were told they weren't welcome they still hadn't got all the relevant paperwork or permissions. They would've known she was vulnerable when they visited and my neighbour is quite distressed now."
Cllr Ken Moss said, "There are reputable companies out there offering this service of course but there are also those which have been set up simply to gain entry to houses. As with all salespeople, be very very sure who is coming into your home before you agree to anything."

Police have been examining CCTV footage and have received information from residents who have provided several names to the authorities. Officers and Councillors have spoken to the families concerned and have received support from the relatives in stopping this behaviour.
Cllr Harry Grayson said, "Enough is enough now. The CCTV is watching the area which includes the Christmas tree and the three Rishton Councillors all agree with the principle that anyone who is caught vandalising the tree should pay for the cost of a new one. We don't have the money to keep replacing our trees just because there is a minority element in Rishton who think it is fun to destroy our decorations."
