Woman dials 999 to report snowman theft in Kent

Post  Betep on Fri Dec 03, 2010 5:49 am

From the BBC:
Woman dials 999 to report snowman theft in Kent

A woman who dialled 999 to report the theft of a snowman from outside her home has been branded "completely irresponsible" by Kent Police.

The force said the woman, from Chatham, thought the incident required their involvement because she used pound coins for eyes and teaspoons for arms.

During the call the woman said: "It ain't a nice road but you don't expect anybody to nick your snowman."

Snow is the big story in GB this week and after a few other stories, I ran across this gem. I wish they had a recording of the call, just to hear "It ain't a nice road but you don't expect anybody to nick your snowman." in a British accent. I'm imagining someplace between Eliza Doolittle and The Queen.

I hope you saw the photo.
