Have your say

TWO men have been arrested on suspicion of selling fish at inflated prices to elderly residents in Ponteland.

On February 18, police received a report of two men in a van selling fish in the area.

Officers found that they had been selling fish door-to-door and in one instance had charged a resident around £290 for 14 packets.

Working with Trading Standards, police continued to investigate and on Monday officers arrested two men, both aged 37 and from the Chester-le-Street and Stanley areas of County Durham, in connection with the incident.

Both men have been bailed pending further inquiries.
