Snow joke for Hatfield police

A WOMAN phoned police this morning, after finding taxis were not running in Hatfield.

Call handlers were shocked when the woman, who had dialled 999, told them she had stayed at a friend’s home in the Woods Avenue area, but was now unable to get home.

A police spokeswoman said: “We just need to reiterate only call us in absolute emergency, especially at times like this.”
