101 non-emergency calls affected by technical issue

At 9.14pm this evening (10 November 2015), a technical issue affected our Force Control Room in York.

Emergency 999 calls were immediately rerouted and answered by our colleagues in Humberside .

However, some people may have experienced difficulty using the 101 non-emergency number.

Business continuity plans have been followed and all calls are now being answered by North Yorkshire Police normally.

A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police said:

We would like to reassure members of the public that 999 emergency calls continued to be answered throughout.

We would ask anyone who called the 101 non-emergency number tonight but was unable to get through to call us back, and we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
