Currently doing the rounds on Twitter, I think this could well be the mother of all local news stories.

Hang on, this sounds familiar...

Sounds like someone might have been inspired by the strip search phone call scam. There was a film made about it in 2012, called Compliance, which was quite compelling - if uncomfortable - viewing.

It's all happening in Rotherham.

99 row leads to 999 call after ice-cream man sees red
'Customer bullshit' if ever I've heard it lol. Couldn't even be bothered to make the standard claim that he thought a '99' would be 99p, but instead thought it would be 'around £1.50'. I particularly like how their 'shocked' photograph features what are obviously cornettos with a flake shoved into them!

Not to mention the 'compensation' faces in the photograph.

Or possibly the Flake Ice Creams you can get at any supermarket at 4 for £2, or the 88 Ice Cream clones.
