Police who received 21 silent 999 calls from an address in Cambridgeshire arrived to find it was just a man trying to unlock his phone.

The man had dialled the number multiple times "as it's stated online that if your mobile phone is locked that calling 999 would unlock it", Fenland police wrote on Twitter.

Officers had first tried to call the number and sent a text message, but got no response.

They attended the address in Wisbech on Thursday night.
