How far will your car run on the fuel warning light - and can you get in trouble for running out of petrol?

Have your say

Police have released an audio clip of the moment a timewaster dialled 999 - to complain his Snapchat wasn’t working.

West Midlands Police shamed the nuisance caller by releasing the phone conversation made in the early hours of Thursday morning.

During the 34-second clip the man can be heard complaining about the social networking app with the emergency call operator.
