Superintendent Simon Walls, Jenny Pyper of the Utility Regulator and Eddie Lynch, the Commissioner for Older People for Northern Ireland re-launch Quick Check 101, a scheme to help stop bogus callers. Under the scheme, residents can now phone 101, the police non-emergency number, to check the identity of callers to their home who claim to represent an energy or water network company. The scheme is not only a collaboration between the PSNI and the Utility Regulator, but also includes all of Northern Irelands energy and water network companies - firmus energy, NIE Networks, Northern Ireland Water, Phoenix Natural Gas and SGN Natural Gas. Supported by the Commissioner for Older People, the scheme is being re-launched in a bid to help people feel safer in their homes. Photo by Simon Graham Photography
