Mobile phone users in the Sutton Bridge area are being warned to look out for suspicious messages showing the logo for Lincolnshire Police.

The warning comes after a man in the county went to police after he received a message on his mobile phone supposedly from the force.

The message claimed the man’s phone was blocked as a result of a website showing sexual content and that he would have to pay £200 to have it unlocked.

Anyone receiving such messages should call the non-emergency 101 number straight away.
