Basically, the police an address more than 40 times in 18 months by mistake.Â It seems they were getting calls to a house in Repton Grove but kept going to a house in Repton Road instead.Â It makes you wonder what is going on at the house in Repton Grove to lead to 40 calls in 18 months doesn’t it?Â Â And that is only assuming the police always go to the wrong address.Â If they only get it wrong half the time there would be 80 calls in 18 months – about one a week.
Highlight of the story is this quote:
When my girlfriend rang Police HQ at Lloyd House the gaffer there said he knew all about it because they had seminars about not getting it wrong.
A whole seminar about telling the difference between one road and another?Â How long can you spin that out?
I hope somebody had an interview a bit like this one…
