The not-so-happy meal! Listen to the 999 caller who complained about McDonald's burger

Wolverhampton | News | Published:

This is the moment a diner caller West Midlands Police on 999 to complain about his McDonalds burger.

After a lengthy argument with the operator over his refusal to "do him a favour" and transfer him to Wolverhampton officers at Bilston Street, the rambling caller finally reveals his 'emergency' involves the ingredients on a McDonalds burger.

When told it does not constitute an emergency, he replies: "Okey dokey."

The man ends the conversation with an expletive, before the patient operator says: "Don't speak to me like that, please."

It is the second food related 999 call in recent times to West Midlands Police after a woman phoned earlier in the year to complain about topping on her ice cream.

Chief Superintendent Jim Andronov, head of the force's Contact Centre, said: "Typically West Midlands Police receive over 1500 calls a day to the 999 number and our operatives have to deal with each one accordingly.

"Of these, some 10 to 20 per cent are not police matters and around 50 per cent are non-emergency calls where contact is appropriate via the 101 number.

"As well as the bizarre calls police also receive deliberate hoax calls which take up vital time."
