One Twitter user replied: "If only there was some kind of song that would help people remember who to call... #NotThePolice #Try666 #Not999 #IAintAfraidOfNoGhost"

This is not the first time the force tweeted about nuisance calls to their 999 team.

In November, a call was made to 999 regarding a booking made on a website.

The force tweeted: "If you have an issues regarding a hotel booking you have made through a booking website, then you need to take this up with them to make the complaint and not call 999 as this is not an emergency. #Not999"

Other #Not999 calls included a child not wanting to go to school.
