I’m glad this is only for one day. I can’t stop reading them. The number of accidental 999 calls from mobiles or kids playing with phones is unbelievable as is the number of silent calls. I’ve read one Tweet saying it was the 22nd 999 call from the same mobile number so I guess they can’t trace it unless they break the law by making a hoax call or threatening them.

Tonight there’s been loads of reports of kids throwing fireworks about so no wonder they hate shops selling them too early for bonfire night it must be a nightmare to have to follow up all the calls.

A few more unusual ones:

call 1912 Call from confused man who said he had been drinking and just woken up. Patrol not needed. Salford #gmp24

call 1931 Verbal abuse from a woman about dogs, Wigan #gmp24

Call 1943 Sus circumstances in Wigan. Loud bang heard #gmp24

call 2056 Homeless man asking police to contact a friend for him #gmp24

call 2157 Greyhounds chasing hares on farmland #gmp24

call 2237 horse running around gardens in Heywood

call 2237 update : 2 police officers have retrieved a horse running around gardens in Rochdale. No help from other agencies

Call 2381 woman leaves cannabis by till at shop in Manchester


Call 686 man shouts ‘you’re gorgeous’ to woman #gmp24

Call 674 confused man reporting his tv not working #gmp24

gmp24_1: Call 281 member of the public in Salford complains about being woken up #gmp24

And my very favourite so far:
