DERBYSHIRE Police has a new web page listing contact numbers to reduce non-emergency calls being made to stations.

The page gives numbers for people to use who wish to report things such as noise nuisance or parking issues.

Inspector Wendy Smedley said: "The police service receives a high number of calls about issues which are not dealt with by the police.

"These calls can put increasing pressure on call handlers who have to redirect callers instead of helping someone who genuinely requires police assistance."

The list can be found at derbyshire.police.uk
