Audio: Gamer calls 999 over "stolen Pokemon"

A Pokemon Go player called 999 to tell police someone had "stolen their Pokemon".

The gaming fan decided to contact Gloucestershire Police as an emergency while using the hugely popular app on the day after its UK launch.

Police gave the player "words of advice" on when it is appropriate to call 999.

The craze, which has reached fever pitch in the US, has sparked a string of incidents in the UK in the past week.
