Drunken callers from Doncaster, and across the region, rang South Yorkshire Police on New Year’s Eve asking for lifts home, requesting bus times and making false reports of crime.

Figures released today show that, on the busiest night of the year, police were inundated with nuisance calls to 999.

One caller rang from Doncaster bus station to ask call handlers if they could help him get back to Pontefract as there were no more buses running.
