BUSINESSES have been warned of a cash scam.

People have entered premises asking to change money, then change it again, but remove some of the cash in the process.

In Morpeth, a man went into Barclays Bank at about 2.30pm on Thursday, June 21, and asked to change money, but staff refused as he was not a customer. Incidents have also been reported in Ashington, Rothbury and Bedlington.

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
