West Midlands Police has issued a reminder over what warrants a call to the 101 non-emergency hotline.

The amusing phone call is thanks to a woman who had noticed a significant amount of poo, human or animal - she isn't sure, all over her garden.

"It's really making me feel sick" she tells the 101 call handler.

The very patient call handler directs her to call the council about her problem, which can't be dealt with by police.

So remember people; think before you call 101, especially if it's about dog poo in your garden.
