Police have released a recording of a woman who dialled 999 to request help in a row over the number of sprinkles on an ice cream. The caller, who was not named by West Midlands Police, contacted emergency operators yesterday while arguing with the owner of an ice cream van.

During a minute-long call, the indignant woman told the operator: ”It doesn’t seem like much of an emergency but it is a little bit because I’ve ordered an ice cream and he’s put bits on one side and none of the other. He’s refusing to give me my money back and saying that I’ve got to take it like that.”

Urging the public not to misuse the 999 system, Chief Superintendent Jim Andronov said: ”If someone is trying to get through to report a genuine life or death emergency, then a minute is a very long time to wait. I cannot stress enough that the 999 number is for emergencies only.”
