'No loo paper' 999 call condemned
Ambulance bosses are condemning a man who rang 999 to say he had run out of toilet paper.
The call was released by South West Ambulance in an attempt to make people realise pranks and hoaxes can stop genuine calls from getting through.
Medical director Dr Andy Smith said it treated all 999 calls as potentially life-threatening.
"Our call takers go through the process with callers and that will take time and they could be missing a call that's a genuine emergency," he added.
