HALTON Borough Council is warning consumers not to buy televisions off the back of vans after some being sold at various sites across Cheshire.

With the possibility the traders may turn up within the borough, Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board Member for Trading Standards Councillor Dave Cargill said: “I would advise consumers to be wary of purchasing these TVs as there is no way of knowing if they are working, safe and/or stolen goods.”
