1. Long walk home
"Just had a 999 call from someone saying they need police out to them as they are lost, far away from home and all they can see is fields - when google maps shows them being 3 minutes away...walking distance."
"Calling 999 to follow up on a non-emergency matter because your phone doesn't ring 101 is inexcusable. Speak with your network provider, email us, or use our webchat facility. 999 is for life & death emergencies only."
