Crossword Clue

Police sent a caller off with more than just a cross word when she dialed and emergency number to ask for help with a clue.

An angry police officer in Grevenbroich, Germany, spelled out that Petra Hirsch would be facing a charge of wasting police time if she didn't clear the line.

Hirsch said: "I had finished the crossword except for this one answer and was totally stumped. I had looked all over the internet and asked friends. The clue was for the full name of a police border protection unit so I thought they would not mind helping and I called the hotline -but they were really rude."

A police spokesman said: "Crossword solutions are not an emergency."
