West Yorkshire Police is urging callers to please not ring 101 for non urgent matters after experiencing a significant spike in calls today.
The force has asked callers to please consider if their call can wait or can be reported online through the force’s online reporting tools after seeing call 101 call volumes increase by a third so far on Thursday (14/1/21) due to winter weather.
Anyone who needs emergency assistance or who is ringing about an ongoing serious incident should still ring 999.
