Two males attended this morning at a Sheltered Housing Complex in Risca.
Both were wearing overalls with a logo either of or similar to “Worcester Gas Services”. Both males were described as white, slim and 5ft10″ tall with English accents.
One male had mousey blond hair and was wearing a plaster on his right foot indicating he had broken his foot while playing football. This was the only male to engage the informant in conversation. The other male was described as having spikey drak hair and some stubble growth on his chin.
They indicated they were there to check on a residents gas supply. No record existed with the warden for the job and the resident had no knowledge of any visit. When asked to ring their boss to double check the informant was told that this was not possible because the “boss was on holiday”. No job related paperwork was available
No identification papers appeared to be carried by the males. Once access was refused both males left.
Telephone 101 if you have any information

The Caerphilly Over 50 facebook page posted another warning today this time from CCBC Social Services:
“Yesterday, in th Risca area 2 men from a company called Lawzak Ltd were in an older person’s house when her home carer arrived. They said they were there to service her Dyson hoover, although this person does not own one. The carer challenged them and when she went to call the family, the 2 men made a very quick exit.
The two men were described:
Man 1) Mid-30s, dark hair, short & slim build
Man 2) Mid 30s, dark hair, mid height, slim build
Both wearing jeans & black t-shirts with logo and driving van with the company logo.
The family passed this information onto the police and have carried out some online research. They spoke to Dyson who said they have been afflicted by companies in South Wales cold calling people offering cheap servicing then charging several hundreds of pounds.
We all understand that the rail improvements are necessary and we all expect some disruption, but Arriva trains, planning and lack of thought for passengers are something that sometimes need addressing, especially when we have big events on in the city and we get just two carriages, or they send passengers to the wrong platforms or most recentlty delay trains due to train staff not turning up.
Newbridge-online recently wrote to Edwina Hart Minister for Economy, Science and Transport to convey our dismay about the way Arriva has been communicating with the public regarding cancelled trains and replacement busses.
Ms Hart said:
I am grateful for you bringing your concerns to my attention. I take matters of customer service seriously, and while we support Arriva Trains Wales with additional investment, it remains their responsibility to manage resources carefully to ensure that sufficient services are provided to meet passenger demand and operate their services safely in line with their contractual obligations.
Should you wish to provide further feedback on Arriva Trains Wales services or stations, you may like to use a new system that I have set up for this purpose which can be accessed on our website at:
This morning (Wednesday 1st July), officers from Gwent Police’s Operation Imperial team arrested a 62 year old man from the Peterstone area on suspicion of offences of Slavery, Servitude and Forced Labour.
Operation Imperial is an ongoing investigation into serious offences against vulnerable adults.
Detective Superintendent Paul Griffiths leads the investigation:
“For over two years now, the Operation Imperial team has been investigating very serious offences committed against some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. A number of people have been arrested and charged and one has been convicted as a result of the investigation and we remain committed to bringing victims to safety and offenders to Justice. We have set up a dedicated number – 01495 745443- which will be answered by staff working on the investigation since it began. This will enable anyone who has any suspicions or concerns about people being exploited for their labour or kept against their will to call us with information so we can investigate. This number will be staffed during office hours and an answerphone facility is available as well. If your call is urgent, then please use the 999 emergency service”
Detective Superintendent Griffiths would like to make a direct appeal to an anonymous caller to re-contact the team:
“We are appealing for anyone with information to get in touch but I would like to take the opportunity to again appeal to an anonymous caller who called Gwent Police on Wednesday May 27th to call back again. The short message indicated the individual had knowledge and information which could assist us. If someone has information and would rather not pass this directly to the Police then I would urge them to contact Crimestoppers, which is independent of the Police and guarantees complete anonymity on 0800 555 111.”
