LISTEN: Man calls 999 to tell them his Snapchat isn't working

We've all panicked when our favourite app stops working or our computer freezes - but it's important to always keep things in perspective.

What you certainly shouldn't do in this situation is call the police looking for help, which is exactly what one foolish Snapchatter did this week before being informed that his call could be traced back to him.

West Midlands Police released a recording of the call, asking people to not waste the time of the emergency operators by reporting such mundane incidents.
