Woman Dials 999 After Manchester Venue Staff Call Her Too Ugly

A woman rang Greater Manchester Police, using the same number people use to get hold of the emergency services in life and death situations, to complain that door staff at a venue in the city's northern quarter had refused her entry because she was "too ugly".

If police were annoyed by this, they didn't show it. They calmly tweeted about it - in between tweets about arresting three drunks in the space of an hour and officers being sent to deal with a domestic dispute.

A police spokesman told the Manchester Evening News that the woman said she would wait for police in an agreed location but when they arrived, she was not there.

The police are not investigating it any further, they said.
