GREATER Manchester Police are tweeting their day. The first round-up of Bobbies On the Tweet is here.

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
