But even they were left dumbfounded by this one over the Bank Holiday.

The Ripley-based Centre have urged residents to think carefully before calling 999- after someone reported they were struggling to get their hands on a gram of their favourite Class A drug.

The caller even proceeded to spell out ‘c-o-c-a-i-n-e’ to the baffled operator.

The caller complained to police he couldn't get a gram of his favourite Class A drug.

“Our call takers can actually spell as well, so wasn’t necessary for you to spell out the word cocaine, she knew exactly what you meant.”
