An odd job man has been arrested after a 71 year old woman was approached at her home and promised the repair of a fence if she paid two lots of £40. The lady handed over the money but the workman left without carrying out the repairs. He then returned to the property but was sent away by the pensioner's friend when he walked into her home univited.
North Yorkshire Police arrested a 22 year old man in connection with the crime, this morning.
