More cold-callers will be given the cold shoulder in Bradford from today.

The Bolton and Undercliffe cold-calling control zone is being extended to cover The Lakes and Kingsdale areas, bringing an extra 2,500 properties into the zone.

Councillor Imran Hussain, deputy leader of Bradford Council, said: “We all have the right to feel safe in our own home and these zones are a big step in that direction.”

Residents will receive packs containing advice on dealing with cold callers, a sticker for their front door and contact numbers for advice. Signs will be put up at entrances to the area.

Don't ask me, I live at Bolton Junction and have had no info through my door at any point previously, I have had many cold callers, something isn't working.

A case of Big Brother gone mad. Not all cold callers are criminals - most are getting off their butt and trying to earn a living. Real villains will not be put off by a sticker in the window. I find a polite 'No Thanks' does the trick.
