'Ex soldier' doorstop seller alert

Had a doorknocker earlier this evening claiming to be “ex-military” (he didn’t clarify which), “trying to get back on my feet” and brandishing a dodgy-looking laminated identity card. Selling a bag full of items that apparently my neighbour down the road had been very interested in (that old chestnut) - a torch that doesn’t need batteries; a magnifying glass with lights; a fire blanket which apparently every house should have by law… The cheapest tat so I declined, at which point he flew out of the gate onto the next property. If you want to help genuine heroes, Help for Heroes is a better port of call, but be aware before he comes knock-knock-knocking at your door.
