Sun, alcohol and the World Cup leads to West Midlands Police having its busiest day in its history

Written by on July 8, 2018

WEST MIDLANDS Police revealed yesterday that it had taken the highest number of 999 calls in one day in its history.

There were 3,276 emergency requests for assistance because of a mix of the sun, alcohol and the World Cup.

The force urged people only to ring 999 if it was a real emergency and Chief Constable Dave Thompson said it was not a record it would be trying to break in the future.
