Twitter in all it's time-wastey goodness.
The Greater Manchester Police has four - count 'em, gmp24_0, gmp24_1, gmp24_2, gmp24_3 - twitter feeds in which they post incidents round the clock.
A few random tweets (and they're all good, trust me):
"Call 2841 A suspicious man was whistling in the street last night in Chorlton"
"Call 2840 Youths causing annoyance, kicking a football against the wall in Stockport."
"Call 2761 Hoax 999 to police and fire - three fire engines and four police vehicles turn up. Caller taken to hospital" (WTF? Someone made a hoax call and got admitted to a hospital??)
"Call 2737 Man refuses to leave the gym in Hazel Grove - patrol attends and leaves on request"
"Call 2701 Abandoned call in Kearsley - mobile activated in owner's pocket - apology received"
Lather, rinse, refresh. This is a treasure trove.
