Shaming and Shaming

What is a hoax 999 call and why are they bad??

Avon & Somerset Police have come up with the entertaining and innovative wheeze of putting time-wasting 999 calls on their site. Some of these are just great, if only to demonstrate how barking mad the so-called ‘customers’ of public services can be, like anyone needed telling. Take your pick from: a female caller ringing 999 to report an injured pigeon, another to request help in finding her glasses, a male caller phoning to say his wife has gone out without leaving any food to eat and stacks more.

There is even audio of the call itself so you can tune in!
