A MAN from Rhyl who rang 999 unnecessarily and who persistently misused a public communication network is to pay in excess of £250.

Ronald Jones, 69, of Ffynnongroew Road, was accused of contacting the ambulance service on 999 on December 26, 2021 and January 25 when there was not a genuine emergency or life-threatening situation.

In doing so, Mr Jones failed to comply with a community protection notice which had been previously issued to him.

He was also accused of repeatedly making use of a public electronic communications network for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety between October 2021 and January.
