Drunk calls 999 over kebab emergency
An annoyed kebab connoisseur called 999 to complain about being short changed by a local take away.
Manchester police was called at 4am by the man who claimed to have paid for his food with a £10 note, but staff only gave him change from a £5.
The Manchester Evening News reports that this was the second of two bogus ‘emergencies’ overnight.
A casino customer also dialled 999 claiming a cloakroom worker was refusing to give him his umbrella back.
City centre Inspector Phil Spurgeon said:
“Please think before you dial 999. If it’s not a genuine emergency contact police on 101.”
