Article contains Met guidance on checking the identity of a police officer:

'Unfortunately, there have been occasions when fraudsters have posed as police officers, both in person and on the phone, to trick people into giving them personal information and defraud them of money.

If one of our officers contacts you in person, they?ll show you their police warrant card. This is proof of their identity and authority.

Remember if you?re unsure about whether the person you?re dealing with is a genuine police officer ? stop ? and call us on 101 to check their identity.

In an emergency always call 999.'
