999 Emergency Number

Last night my neighbor’s house alarm was triggered multiple times. At 4.00am I was concerned on what happened as there’s no one at the house – they went somewhere for Chinese New Year. I called the emergency line 999 to report this, as I don’t dare to check it out myself.

Guess what? No answer. The phone was ringing but there was no answer. Imagine a real emergency such as fire is happening…

Oh well… nothing much left to say. Go figure.
