Upon finding a rat in his house, an Essex man was so distraught that he saw fit to call 999, taking up precious emergency service operator time.
Bigger Than a Mouse!
The panic stricken man informed the emergency service call operator that he’d seen something ‘bigger than a mouse’ in his house, expanding by giving measurements of 5 inches from the tip of his nose to end of it’s tail. Trying to convince the call handler that dialling 999 wasn’t as unreasonable as it seemed, he explained that he’d had mice in his house before, but that this was different… it’s was bigger and more serious!
When the operator told him that the best course of action would be to call the RSPCA or pest control, he asked if it was safe to go back into the house to get a pen to note down the number, asking for assurance that a rat couldn’t kill him!
