Police took a 999 call from a disgruntled shopper

West Midlands Police said in the same time period in the wake of the Manchester Area bomb they also had emergency calls about spilt paint, a bale of hay on the pavement and a picnic in a park.

The force released audio footage of a shopper telling police he is in Debenhams and is not happy that they are refusing to change an item.

The call handler says: "Are you telling me that you're in Debenhams and the staff won't change an item for you?"
