    Mysterious object in the Sky over Wales

    The 999 Control Room conversation, which took place in May, was recorded - and below is a transcript:

    Control Room: "South Wales Police, what's your emergency?"
    Caller: "It's not really. I just need to inform you that across the mountain there's a bright stationary object."
    Control room: "Right."
    Caller: "If you've got a couple of minutes perhaps you could find out what it is? It's been there at least half an hour and it's still there."
    Control: "It's been there for half an hour. Right. Is it actually on the mountain or in the sky?"
    Caller: "It's in the air."
    Control: "I will send someone up there now to check it out."
    Caller: "OK."

    The mystery was soon solved, as the exchange between control and an officer at the scene, makes clear.

    Control: "Alpha Zulu 20, this object in the sky, did anyone have a look at it?"
    Officer: "Yes, it's the moon. Over."

    Control room staff also dealt with a stream of unsuitable calls on the 999 number during an "extremely busy period", said a spokesman.
    Another caller rang asking for help when they wanted to vote for Rhydian on the TV programme X-Factor.

    Of course if you spell Doctor properly you'll find you can use those extra letters...
