Pokemon Go: Player calls 999 to report 'theft'

A Pokemon Go player called 999 to report stolen Pokemon.

Gloucestershire Police said the emergency call was made at 11:15 BST on Friday, the day after the smash hit smartphone game was launched in the UK.

The operator ended the conversation "swiftly" after giving "words of advice" about when it was appropriate to call 999.
