Police in Northern Ireland have expressed dismay after receiving a 999 call from a member of the public complaining about their local tanning salon being shut down.

The caller was annoyed they had lost out on pre-paid minutes under the tubes.

Posting on its Facebook page, the PSNI said: "Whilst the call handler is taking this call, listening to the story and politely dealing with the call, someone else is in a queue to have their call answered.

"That call might, just might, be more important than 25 minutes of exposure to UV rays.

"Proper use of the 999 system?

"You decide."
