POLICE have reiterated that 999 should only be rung in emergencies after a train delay call.

The West Yorkshire Police Contact Management Centre received a call from an individual who had a very specific complaint.

Their train from a Bradford railway station had been delayed for between two and three hours.

The individual decided to ring 999 to share their gripe.

A police spokesperson said: "If your train has been delayed for two to three hours then you will need to speak with staff at Bradford train station and not ring 999 to complain.

"Police are not able to deal with this."

Less than two weeks ago, police issued a stern warning after a parent rang the emergency line because their child refused to go to school.
