Devon and Cornwall Police have revealed some of the plain silly calls they receive on their emergency line.

In one instance, a man dialled 999 after he ran out of toilet paper.

Meanwhile, another caller phoned to ask which shops would be open on Christmas Day.

Around 200,000 phone calls were made to Devon and Cornwall Police's 999 line last year.

Police say the number is for use in emergencies only, such as to deal with a crime or an incident is occurring or where a life may be in jeopardy.

Have a listen to some of the calls, as revealed by The Plymouth Herald below:
