For those of you that did not know, a while ago, the police trialled a new number for use when reporting minor crimes, to attempt to free up the 999 service number.

This could be from youth's congregating in the street and noise pollution, to minor thefts which immediate responses were not required.

Did anyone have any experience of this service? and what did you think of it?

Used this service on more than one occaison and it wasn't just for the Poilce. I used it for reporting street lights that were out on my back lane, it was a great service we had a leaflet through which gave all the reasons you could use the number for.

101 is a 24-hour number provided by your police and local council to deal with community safety issues, including certain non-emergency crime, policing and anti-social behaviour.

101 is live in 3 areas across England and Wales: Hampshire & the Isle of Wight, Cardiff and Sheffield.

101 is for:

  • vandalism and graffiti;
  • noise nuisance;
  • threatening and abusive behaviour;
  • abandoned vehicles;
  • dumping and fly tipping;
  • drunk and rowdy groups;
  • drug related anti-social behaviour; and
  • broken street lighting.

Calls to the service cost 10p from landlines and mobiles and will be recorded for training, quality monitoring and public safety purposes.

You should still dial 999 when there is immediate danger or you witness a crime taking place.

It seems they've finnished the trial up here, and have moved on.

Shame, it was a handy number!

Whats the point this was scrapped a long time ago as a waste of time and money

Actually, it wasn't scrapped.

it just has a rolling test period in each area to gauge its need.

The test period in this area is up because the time ran out, not because it was scrapped.

I, for one, hope its brought back.

Of all test periods, rolling is my favourite variety.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
