Police pledge to crack down on hoax callers

POLICE in Bellshill this week vowed to crack down on anyone they catch making hoax calls to them.

The move follows a spate of recent incidents in which malicious calls have been made to police by people in the Bellshill area.

Officers say that the calls are placing members of the public in danger because they are diverting the attention of the emergency services to nuisance calls when they could be dealing more effectively instead with potentially serious incidents.
