Audio of drunk Man U fan who called 999 after loss to Sunderland

A drunken Man United fan dialled 999 to complain about his team's defeat to Sunderland in the cup.

The man, who has yet to be identified, described the performance as "a crime" and demanded to speak to Sir Alex Ferguson about the matter.

Officers from Greater Manchester Police's North Division were less than impressed with the incident.

A post appeared on their Facebook account this morning which read: "Last night, at approximately 10.30pm a man from the Crumpsall area of north Manchester rang 999 in a drunken state demanding to speak to Sir Alex Ferguson about last night's result.

"Obviously, it can be a sad and depressing moment when your football team loses a game, however can we all please remember that 999 is to be used for emergencies only.

"For any other police related enquiries that are not an emergency, you can ring 101.
 
"If you would like to speak to Sir Alex about recent football results we here at GMP Manchester North can only suggest you try ringing Manchester United FC directly as you will probably (not definitely) have a much better chance of getting through to him there rather than ringing the police."

Diane Grandidge, GMP's business lead for call handling, said: "Silly calls like this one are thoughtless and can make a difference in a life and death situation. As a force we receive thousands of emergency and non-emergency calls, which is why I would urge those considering making such pranks to think twice.

"Our call handlers should be able to focus their efforts on real emergencies as they are happening. Hoax calls could delay an officer responding to a real emergency. You wouldn't want your own emergency call being delayed by someone tying up a line with a hoax."



Read a full transcript of the call below:

Call Handler: Hello, you're through to the police how can i HELP?

FAN: Yeah could I speak to Sir Alex Ferguson please?

CH: Not by dialling the 999 line I'm afraid

FAN: (INAUDIBLE) The result is all wrong. They had extra time and it was a total and utter load of rubbish

CH: Sir, you're actually on the 999 police line. Is there any crime you need to report to the police this evening?

FAN: Yeah a crime. Yeah. I wanna report a crime.



CH: And what crime is that?

FAN: The crime is that Manchester United... Manchester United... were absolutely knackered.

CH: Can I take your name please?

(REDACTED)

CH: OK, and you're address?

(REDACTED)

CH: OK, I'm going to clear the line now.

FAN: Well, can you phone me back then? You must have him.

CH: No

FAN: Why not?

CH: Because it's not a police matter.

FAN: Not a police matter... Are you a policewoman?

CH: No I'm not a policewoman, I'm a member of police staff. This is not a 999 matter.

FAN: 999 matter... Oh I see. Right. Ok then.

CH: I'm going to go now. Goodbye.

FAN: Bye bye.
