Power Cut Stops Police Calls
Northamptonshire Police have thanked people for their patience after a power cut meant non-emergency calls to them couldn't be answered.
The problems on the evening of Sunday 20 May 2012 meant calls to the non-emergency 101 couldn't be picked up for around five hours. Northamptonshire Police say 999 calls were unaffected, and these were answered as normal.
Engineers fixed the problems late in the evening.
A statement issued by the force late on Sunday said: "We are pleased to confirm that our 101 non emergency number is up and running as normal. This follows a power outage which disrupted the Force Control Room from approximately 18.00hrs on Sunday 20th May. All 999 calls were managed whilst 101 was interrupted for a period of time. We would like to thank the public for their patience during this time."
