Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

A GIRL of six who di­alled 999 by ac­ci­dent on New Year’s Eve on her mother’s phone has writ­ten a let­ter of apol­ogy to po­lice.

Izzy Vardy’s mum got a call from Not­ting­hamshire Po­lice af­ter the girl hit the emer­gency call but­ton on the locked mo­bile.

Izzy, of An­nes­ley, said her mum was “very cross” as it could have stopped some­one get­ting help.

The let­ter, sent along with a box of bis­cuits, read: “I’m so so sorry to you and my mummy and daddy.

“We have chat­ted and I un­der­stand you only ring 999 in an emer­gency.”

The force thanked Izzy and her par­ents “for un­der­stand­ing what we do”.
