    Had to phone 999 numerous times, sadly.

    A few times for when my grandpa took ill, twice when my stepdad took mini strokes and then once when my partner and friend both got mugged and attacked.

    Shall I call the number?

    And, in answer to the thread question, no, someone called them for me.

    Yup,

    I called 101 once, but it probably should have been 999 I just wasn't thinking properly. I saw a woman being dragged screaming out of a house and along the street into another house.

    Yeh, my brother tripped over my foot and smashed his head on a brick corner in the kitchen, and blood just oozed (gushed ) out... In the end a fire engine turned up as well as ambulance which was pretty cool!
