A timely reminder of a new non-emergency telephone number 101

Apparently this 101 number is to encompass all of England and Wales by January 2012, in an attempt to cut down the number of unnecessary 999 calls to the emergency services. Look out for notification in your area. TC. non-emergency number

No good for me - I'm right on the border of Surrey and need their police, fire and ambulance services but I have a Londinium telephone number so all calls go to the wrong lot of services.

Like wiz-king we have problems with the wrong routing of 999 calls as we have a West Lothian phone code yet stay (just) in the Central Scotland Police, Fire and Ambulance Services area. Mobile emergency calls are even worse. I used my mobile to report a fairly large blaze in woods nearto us. I was 'routed' to the Fife Fire Service!

Never mind.

When Big Eck gets it through we will all be on big happy family, with just one police force and one fire service!

A crofter ringing to report a dead cow on his land in Shetland will get an immediate response from Glasgow!
