Police receive 999 call because of incorrect topping on pizza

Police have said they are “cheesed off” after receiving an emergency call about an incorrect PIZZA order.

Gloucestershire police said on Twitter: “If your pizza topping is not correct, please do not ring the police on 999 to report it. 999 is for emergency calls. #cheesedoff.”

The report prompted derision on Twitter.

@alexluffrum replied: “Are you serioues!!!?? Wasting police time and resources is still a criminal offence surely? And if so send out a warrant to arrest them.”

This is not the first time Gloucestershire police have been disturbed by such a call.

In July, someone dialled 999 to report an incorrect takeaway order.


This is how much we spend on household bills over a lifetime
