Fist fights and fish fury on a busy Black Eye Fri­day

The Scarborough News - - WELCOME TO YOUR NEWS -

A woman di­alled 999 to com­plain about a fish and chip shop as po­lice dealt with hun­dreds of calls on ‘Black Eye Fri­day’.

It was in one of hun­dreds of mes­sages the force re­layed to the pub­lic via Twit­ter from midday on Fri­day to 6am the fol­low­ing morn­ing.

Po­lice said in the tweet: “We’ve re­ceived a 999 call from a woman to re­port that she has or­dered two por­tions of fish and chips but that the chip shop will only give her a sausage. This is not a 999 call. Please only use 999 in an emer­gency.”

Scar­bor­ough in­ci­dents in­cluded a re­port of a po­ten­tially vul­ner­a­ble woman in a dis­tressed state, anti-so­cial be­hav­iour at a fast food restau­rant and a va­ri­ety of fights at pubs and bars.

Po­lice also re­ported find­ing a drink-driver who was three times over the limit, a caller say­ing a man kept ring­ing his door­bell, fears that some­body was ‘run­ning around and be­lieved to be car­ry­ing a knife’ and a res­i­dent who said that their neigh­bour was ‘growl­ing’.
