London, Sept 4 (ANI): Worried UK residents phoned 999 dozens of times to report sightings of ghosts and UFOs, a force has disclosed.
The calls range from reporting ghosts of "two old ladies in a white Fiesta" on a dual carriageway and Martians abducting wife and dog to sighting a ghost of Paul Newman, reports The Telegraph.
In one case in October 2003, the force recorded, "Caller states he has got a ghost on CCTV. Caller wanted advice on who he could contact as the footage was going to make him a million. Advised to go to the press."
A man in Callington, Cornwall, reported his wife and dog being abducted by aliens, while another said he'd seen UFO over a pie factory in Okehampton, Devon.
Other calls were made to report "a long, white cylinder thing like a train in the sky" and "orange balls moving slowly upwards and in all different directions".
"There are occasions though when a more unusual call is received," said a spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police.
"These are all dealt with professionally by our highly trained staff who access and process them in an appropriate way." (ANI)
