There is a Christmas plea from South Western Ambulance crews.

Teams from Cornwall to Somerset say the number of 999 calls can jump 17% at this time of year.

We are being urged not to ring if it is not an emergency.

Spokesman Martin Callow says they have already had to deal with one call about no loo paper in a public toilet: "Control room staff are engaged with these particular callers. That takes away the focus of the person who might well be having their heart attack, their stroke or indeed breathing difficulties. The resource might not be sent but they do tie our control room operators up".
