Film promotes second-hand car advice
YOUNGSTERS are being reminded to take care when buying a second-hand car.
Trading Standards officers at Essex County Council received almost 2,700 calls last year from residents concerned about a car they had bought.
To combat the problem officers have made online film to promote a checklist for people to follow when buying a second-hand car.
It is part of a wider Don’t be Taken for a Ride campaign launched by the team last month.
- To download the checklist visit the Trading Standards website.
