UK cops reveal ridiculous calls people make to emergency number
UK Police have revealed the "inappropriate" emergency calls that they received in 2012.
They said that once an angry father dialled 999 to report his teenage son was refusing to go to bed.
The schoolboy, 14, was playing on his games console at midnight and ignored his parents' pleas to switch it off and go to sleep.
Police in North Wales said that it was one of the hundreds of "inappropriate" calls that they received this year, the Daily Mail reported.
Other calls included rubbish bins being left in the wrong place, reports of a faulty phone line and a lost dog.
Meanwhile, Cleveland Police reported a woman calling 999 to complain that her takeaway order was wrong.
She told the emergency operator that the eatery had refused to provide the right meal and she needed help from police.
Other calls included a man who contacted emergency services asking how to send a fax, a job seeker, who wanted police to type up a CV, and a man who rang at 4.30 am to check the score in a recent Middlesbrough FC game.
One man called the emergency line to complain that he had been to the dentist around the corner but it was not open and he needed a dental surgery as his face was swollen.
