BARNSTAPLE, Mass., Sept. 19 (UPI) -- A Massachusetts police department released audio of a call from a confused British woman trying to reach police in her local town of the same name.
The Barnstaple Police Department in Massachusetts released audio of a call from a woman seeking to report a car accident between Muddiford and Ilfracombe -- towns neighboring Barnstaple, England.
The call goes on for about two and a half minutes before Officer Mark McWilliams realized the cause of the confusion.
"Our response time is going to be about six hours," the officer jokes while sharing a laugh with the caller.
News of the wrong-number call reached England's Barnstaple Police, who tweeted about the incident with amusement.
