Welcome to the Yarnscombe website


Here is some useful information to help prepare for winter.

01/12/2017: On Sunday 26th November between 15:30 and 16:00 hours a male falsely claiming to be a South West Water employee called at a property in Moreton Park Road, Bideford. The male claimed to have been working on the water supply at the adjoining property and wanted to check there was no effect on the neighbour’s water pressure. Whilst busying the elderly occupant in the kitchen an unseen accomplice of the male made their way upstairs and preceded to search an upstairs bedroom where they were able to steal items including jewelry and a coin collection.

Description: White male, aged late forties to early fifties, slim build, about 5ft. 5in. tall. He was wearing a red/brown flat cap and full length blue rain coat. He had a pale complexion and spoke with an Irish accent.

We urge people to keep chains on their doors and use spy holes before opening doors to strangers. Challenge people for identification and if you are in any doubt then call the company they claim to be working for to check or call us on 999. These people can be very convincing so please be aware!

If you have any information that could help us with our investigation into this incident then please call 101 quoting Log 636 of 26/11/17.
