POLICE are to visit a man in Newtownards after he rang 999 to complain that his local Chinese takeaway wasn’t answering their phone.
A PSNI Ards Inspector said: “When he was reminded that 999 was strictly for emergencies he stated it was an emergency as he wanted to order a meal.
“I have arranged for the local neighbourhood officer to call with this man.”
However, police will not be calling with the man’s Chinese takeaway.
He will be getting a visit and advised about abusing the 999 emergency telephone number.
