NO, you really couldn't make it up....

999 callers to Cambs Police in the past year have included the woman unhappy with her council house and hoping to get a swap, the traveller who missed a bus and needed help, and an inquiry as to how a shed burglary reported a week earlier was progressing.

It does get worse, I promise you, for among other callers was the man keen to know the speed limit on the A14( to settle an argument with his girlfriend) and the woman wanting police to call round....to rid her bath of a spider.
