A six-year-old girl who accidentally wrote 999 on her mother's phone at New Year's Eve wrote a letter of apology to the police.
Izzy Vardy's mother later received a call from the Nottinghamshire police station after inadvertently hit the emergency call button on the blocked cell phone.
Izzy, of Annesley, wrote that he was "so sorry … and I understand that he only plays 999 in an emergency".
He noticed that his mother had been "very angry".
After Mrs. Vardy was informed of the call, she told Izzy that her phone calls might prevent someone from getting help.
Izzy sent the letter along with a box of biscuits to the force headquarters.
"I am so sorry you all and my mother and my father," he wrote.
"We have talked about 999 and I understand that he only plays 999 in an emergency."
The force thanked Izzy and his parents "for understanding what I do".
