Brits have been asked not to call 999 amid a 'technical fault' which has seen a number of areas across the UK affected.
A number of police forces and emergency services have shared the warning online today (25 June) after people found their calls to 999 were not working properly.
The announcement first came from London's Met Police, which warned: "Due to a technical fault that is impacting a number of police forces, many 999 calls are not connecting."
The force advised people ringing for an emergency to instead call 101 until further notice.
West Yorkshire Police has put the issue down to BT's lines which were experiencing problems 'all over the country', while Derbyshire Police has said the problem is happening 'nationally'.
Several other forces have since issued similar announcements. Here are all those affected so far:
South Wales Police
South Wales Fire and Rescue
