A national technical issue impacted 999 calls to a number of emergency services earlier today (June 25).
Kent Police advises people to still dial 999 in an emergency but if they can’t get through then call 101 in an emergency.

Also use 101 for Kent Fire & Rescue Service if the 999 line does not connect.
For medical emergencies dial 111 if 999 does not connect.
An NHS spokesperson said: “There is an issue affecting the national 999 call system.
“BT is working to resolve this issue as soon as possible but, in the meantime, if you are unable to contact 999 in a medical emergency, please call 111.”
