Police in North Wales have issued a desperate plea to cut down the numbers of time wasting calls being made to emergency control room staff.
They've released recordings of some of the worst offenders. One caller rang 999 when she got a sofa stuck in a door. Another phoned to complain about her catalogue company. Ian Lang reports.
A woman getting her sofa stuck in a doorway, a man enquiring if a hospital will pay for a taxi home and a caller complaining about a catalogue company are just some of the nuisance calls North Wales Police has received.
The force has releasd recordings of 999 calls as part of a campaign to reduce the number of unnecessary and inappropriate calls it has to deal with.
