    Hahaha! :-D I'm amazed that people don't understand that 999 is for EMERGENCIES.

    WTF! The police spend far too long on the phone trying to explain that its not an emergency and suggesting alternative phone numbers. They should take a harder line once its clear its not an emergency they should quickly tell them and hang up, if they phone back go and have them arrested or issue a fine.

    Although some of the comments are ridiculous, (unbelievable in fact) I do agree a tougher line should be taken. These kind of people should be fined to discourage their stupid behaviour.

    I remember there was a program years ago of a woman who was addicted to ringing 999

    IIRC they cannot hang up on a caller, the only course of action is to persuade them that it doesn't warrant a genuine response and that they should hang up now to free the line.

    Mark Myers (pseudonym) has quite a lot of material about this at http://www.neenaw.co.uk

    They can hang up, if it call is obviously a hoax or the like. But hanging up is not allowed if there is any doubt from what I've been told (and that site confirms that too).
