And finally… browned off

The PSNI has publicly shamed a member of the public who called 999 to complain that their local tanning salon had closed.

The caller wanted to know “how they could claim back their unused 25 minutes”, police said on Facebook.

The post added: “Whilst the call handler is taking this call, listening to the story and politely dealing with the call, someone else is in a queue to have their call answered.

“That call might, just might, be more important than 25 minutes of exposure to UV rays.

“Proper use of the 999 system? You decide.”
