SOMEONE who rang the 999 emergency line saying they were going to bed has been warned they will be arrested if they continue such calls.

West Yorkshire Police's Contact Management Centre shared details of the call to highlight the importance of using 999 for emergency calls only.

The team often tweets some of the more unusual phone calls they receive from the general public.

The service tweeted: "999 call made to advise us they were off to bed...... Carry on ringing about this and you'll be sleeping in a custody cell. #Not999 #ThisActuallyHappened"


Previous calls to the police's contact centre have included someone who called 999 to ask them to book some driving lessons for them.

Another called to say their knickers had been stolen from their washing line.

Other examples included a call from someone asking if their bank was open and a dispute over paying a window cleaner.
