Police are investigating an assault and are looking for three men.

It happened on October 13 at about 2pm in Wigton and a resident has been intimidated and assaulted by doorstep traders.

A spokesman for the police said: "Three men had been employed to carry out work at a house. Following a dispute over payment, the resident has been intimated and assaulted, causing no injury.

"The three suspects are white and described as being aged between 30 and 40 years old.

"One of the suspects is described as stocky with short, cropped, dark hair. Another is described as very slim with untidy brown hair and a goatee beard. All were wearing workwear clothing.
