We have received reports over the last couple of days of a male trying to pass fake £20 notes around the Macclesfield/Disley/Poynton areas.

We have been given two descriptions of the male which are quite similar :

Description one : Irish traveller, 20/30 years,slim build with short dark hair and cut under one eye
Description two : Male with either an irish or southern english accent, slim build wearing a yellow t shirt and grey bodywarmer.

It is thought the offender drives a white transit van.

Please check any £20 notes which come into your possession
