999 calls put on hold due to fault
EMERGENCY calls to Gloucestershire police were put on hold for three hours in the early hours of yesterday morning due to a fault on telephone lines.
Communications provider British Telecom informed police that calls from some parts of Cheltenham were not getting through. At 2.46am on Sunday, Gloucestershire police took to social networking site Twitter to tell people an outage to the 999 system was restricting some calls.
All numbers starting with 22, 23, 24, 27 and 28 in the Cheltenham area were affected.
The issue had been corrected three hours later and the problem resolved by 5.41am.
