      I can see confusion for a while :)

      Calls cost 15p from both land lines and mobiles no matter how long call is.

      A car that has already been stolen (not in the act of being stolen)
      Any crime that has already been committed and is not in the act of being committed.
      999 is for crimes taking place there and then, serious medical emergencies,serious fires taking place at that time.
      Just a few examples

      I think this is a good move, so many people will dial 999 for quickness whether it be an emergency or not rather than looking for the number for their local police station which as stated caused alot of pressure for the emergency services, atleast with this number it's easy to remember and doesn't take any time to search for a number to call.
