Ambulance staff blast drunk who asked them to find his trousers.
The call, at 5.45am yesterday, came from an incoherent man in the Willenhall area of the Black Country, blearily complaining that his trousers had disappeared.
It was just one of four bizarre pleas for help that left emergency call-handlers in a state of disbelief.
The first call came at 3.45am from Birmingham's Broad Street where a 32 year-old man bemoaned the fact that he "couldn't walk after too much dancing".
Next came a call from Low Hill in Wolverhampton. Another 32 year-old drunk needed an ambulance because he had fallen and hurt his finger - two days ago.
The final call at 6.40am was from an 18 year-old man in Handsworth who had toothache. A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "At one of the busiest times of the year it would have been helpful if these people had first thought about whether dialing 999 was appropriate."
