A BAN on cold calling is to be extended to the Mortonhall area in a bid to stamp out bogus caller crime.Police said work was "currently progressing" on making Mortonhall a No Cold Calling Zone, joining Joppa and Cramond.
Police and council workers say the ban on doorstep selling has made a huge improvement in the lives of elderly and vulnerable residents.
The scheme was created to combat bogus callers, high-pressure sales people and "distraction" housebreakers.
