West Midlands Police have released a recording of a 999 call, of a woman who called the emergency number because she was angry over the amount of sprinkles on her ice cream.
She contacted police to request help so that she could have more sprinkles on her ice cream.
She contacted emergency services while she was arguing with the owner of the ice cream van.
She twlls the operator ‘It doesn’t seem like much of an emergency but it is a little bit because I’ve ordered an ice cream and he’s put bits on one side and none on the other.’
Chief Superintendent Jim Andronov is now urging members of the public not to misuse the 999 system.
