Hastings 111 responded to promptly

1 min read

Two police cars were dispatched along a dog unit within four minutes of receiving two 111 calls at around 11.16 pm on Saturday the 20th November said Hastings Area Commander, Inspector Dean Clifford.

The 111 calls were made just two minutes after a crash occurred on Nottingley Road in Hastings.

Communications Centre records show that a woman witness to the crash who felt threatened, spoke with a Police call-taker for six minutes. During that call the location of the crash was established and it was also established that she was safe. The second call came from a person living near the scene of the crash.

Inspector Clifford said the threatened woman did everything right by getting away from the threat, ensuring her own safety and calling police.

"We stress that people should call 111 in the event of an emergency or threat to their safety," said Inspector Clifford.
