Warning signs as being used as part of a Wild West-themed project to deter rogue traders targeting residents in an area of Kidderminster.

The scheme, called Yee-Ha!, is designed to equip people living in the Offmore area of the town with the tools to guard against con artists and to feel comfortable in reporting any suspicious activity, the Shuttle reports.

High-visibility warning signs have been put up in the area to alert rogue traders, and homes have been equipped with a booklet explaining the Yee-Ha! project.

The scheme has been organised by the Wyre Forest Community Safety Partnership.

Helen Dyke, chair of the partnership, told the newspaper: "Offmore was the first area in the county to have a No Rogue Traders Zone, back in October, 2008.

"We have found that it has had a positive effect for residents and helped to reduce fear of crime. The zone has also reduced the activity of door-to-door traders. Now we're acting on feedback from residents and making more improvements to the zone."

Recently, residents in Brighton installed warning signs in a park to raise awareness about a petition to combat antisocial behaviour.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800281279-ADNFCR
