999 CALLS: Police have asked people to ensure their mobile phone is locked while it is in their bag or pocket after three emergency 999 calls were made in error over the weekend. A Darlington Police spokeswoman said: “Obviously, this has resulted in unnecessary work for our call handlers who have to trace the call, and ring the caller back to confirm whether or not there is a genuine emergency. Please remember to lock your phone so that you don't accidentally call the emergency services.”
