Coronavirus: Warning of spike in scams linked to crisis

Councils are warning people to beware of scammers pretending to be health officials or offering to pick up food and medicines.

Fraudsters are also selling counterfeit face masks and hand sanitisers, says the LGA, which speaks for councils in England and Wales.

Hand sanitiser containing an ingredient banned for human use six years ago has been seized in Birmingham.

The LGA is advising people not to accept help from cold-callers.
