    I know there have been some really silly ones but.....

    A woman in North Yorkshire phoned the Police on Friday night because when she got home she found the fish and chip shop had given her a battered sausage instead of the fish that she ordered.

    Sigh....

    This reminds me of a story about the Leeds Fire Brigade who were called out by an old lady whose cat was stuck up a tree - they rescued it and then were invited in by the lady for a cup of tea.

    As they left they reversed over the cat.

    There was a rather sad one in Cambridge a couple of years ago when a lady rang 999 because her can opener had broken and she couldn't open a can of dog food so her dog was hungry

    Whilst we all chuckle at these examples, there is a serious side. This diverts focus from cases that actually need it.
