North Yorkshire Police is apologising after a technical issue at their force control room last night. 

The problem started at around 9.14pm. 

Emergency 999 calls were rerouted and answered by Humberside Police. However, the force says some people may have experienced difficulty using the 101 non-emergency number.

Calls are now being answered by North Yorkshire Police as normal. 

A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police said: "We would like to reassure members of the public that 999 emergency calls continued to be answered throughout.

"We would ask anyone who called the 101 non-emergency number tonight but was unable to get through to call us back, and we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused."
