North Yorkshire police have taken to twitter tonight to express anger and frustration with a serial hoax caller to the 999 service.
They say they were called on four occasions and this could have put lives at risk.
@NYPControlRoom Dealing with a serial #Hoax caller at the mo. four 999 calls. Unfortunately for him we have his details from our systems. #Unlucky,
The incidents he was reporting provoked a large police response which could have endangered other lives. He thinks its funny. We don't.
