Don't call unless you really do have an emergency - not just a broken nail!
In a Tweet today, the Force said these are just some of the inappropriate calls that they've had to their 999 emergency line. They said: "On average, we receive 120 calls a day to our 999 line that are not a life or death emergency. One is too many. #MakeTheRightCall. #30Days30WaysUK #Not999."
One caller said: "I've burst a tyre on the motorway."
Caller said: "I've paid 3 contactless card at the store but she said it was declined."
Caller: "I have broken my toe nail."
"My benefits haven't gone into my bank."
"Can you buy me a packet of cigarettes?"
"Is it illegal to drive with your flip-flops on?"
"I was walking my dog and a staffie has been chasing him, trying to hump him."
"Could the police officer who came to my property have taken the aerial for my television reception?"
"We have an emergency - we're at Leeds train station and we have somebody who is being sick."
"I want a pizza so can you order me a pizza?"
"I think I've had my phone line cut."
"We've just got a new phone put in and my wife was showing some friends and dialled by accident. Sorry about that."
