LFB Hoax Callouts Fall

New figures show that the number of hoax calls attended each year by the London Fire Brigade has fallen by 83 percent over the last 10 years.

The Brigade has taken measures to help cut the number of fake calls by training 999 control officers to challenge callers if they believe them to be making a prank call.

Last year there were 2152 hoax callouts, down from nearly 13 thousand in 2001.
