Hoax film made after South Central Ambulance misuse

Help

An ambulance service has made a film of hoaxes to show how they divert resources from genuine emergencies.

People dialled 999 to ask for help with changing light bulbs, broken finger nails and to provide lifts home, South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS) said.

SCAS, which serves Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Hampshire, said staff responded to more than 1,200 hoax calls in the last year.
