We do get inappropriate drunken calls from members of the public but, after stern reminders from a police officer, they tend to quickly stop.
However, [the] phone pest ignored our warnings...
A 59-year-old Birmingham man was given a caution


Oh my goodness. I better remember to heed reminders lest I get a caution!

He was drunk so he was really trying to dial 666, which handles those kinds of calls

I don't know what a 999 line is.  I'm going to assume it's a british phone sex line.

999 is the U.K. equivalent of 911.

I always thought it seemed pretty stupid making it the same 3 digits. They gotta get a lot more accidental dials calling the emergency line than the U.S. does.

I would think so too. Seems easier to butt dial.

Yep we do but 999 is historical. The idea origionally was that in the dark you could stick two fingers in the old rotary dials and twist it 3 times. changing numbers in the dark might be difficult. obviously, no one uses dial telephones or public telephone boxes anymore (remember them?). 000 was ruled out for some exchange reason and 111 wasn't possible because sometimes when you hang up you get a single "click" which on pulse dial exchanges might lead to a click-click-click if someone hovered putting the set down.


As a side note, if you're ever inthe UK use 999, the european wide standard is 112, and 112 will now work in the UK alongside 999.

/csb the UK railways used 111 as the emergancy number and lo, suffered the exact same problem that lead to the GPO ruling it out.
