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.

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

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.

Meanwhile Dave Rimjob from Twat Street, Scunthorpe has nothing at all to say on the issue.
Dave? DAVE? Are you familiar with him? It's DAVID.
