The Derbyshire Police Contact Centre have heard it all.

But even they were left dumbfounded by this one over the Bank Holiday.

The Ripley-based Centre have urged residents to think carefully before calling 999- after someone reported they were struggling to get their hands on a gram of their favourite Class A drug.

The caller even proceeded to spell out ‘c-o-c-a-i-n-e’ to the baffled operator.

Staff tweeted: “Remember everyone; 999 is NOT the place to report that you’re unable to get a gram of cocaine!

“Our call takers can actually spell as well, so wasn’t necessary for you to spell out the word cocaine, she knew exactly what you meant.”
