THE police have urged people to only use the 999 number for essential calls, after someone called to complain they had not received a parcel after giving the wrong postcode.
The West Yorkshire Police Contact Management Centre often tweet some of the more unusual phone calls they receive from the general public.
And this tweet was no exception after a call to police from an angry Royal Mail customer.
This follows two different occasions earlier this year when people have wrongly used the service for more unusual calls.
An angry caller rang the emergency line to ask the service to ring their doctors as they were fed up of waiting 30 minutes to try to get through.
A caller also rang the number complaining they could not get chicken nuggets from a branch of McDonald’s.
