A conman has been reportedly trying to sell adverts on behalf of Boston Borough Council to businesses in the town today.

The man is said to have offered to sell advertising on screens on public display at the council’s offices at the Municipal Buildings in West Street.

A council spokesman stressed: “No one from the council is selling advertising space and no one has the council’s authority to do this. If anyone has concerns about this they should call the council’s community safety team on 01205 314318.”
