If you are in danger and need to talk to the police but you are unable to speak you can:
- Dial 999
- Listen to the questions from the 999 operator
- Respond by coughing or tapping the handset if you can.
- If prompted, press 55, this lets the 999 call operator know it's a genuine emergency and you'll be put through to the police.
