A Nottinghamshire woman who continually made nuisance calls to the emergency services has been given a criminal behaviour order.

Megan Ayscough, 22, of Anston Avenue, Worksop, was given a two year criminal behaviour order after she made numerous calls to emergency services asking to them attend and wasting their time.

Nottingham Crown Court heard that the order bans Ayscough from calling the NHS, emergency or non-emergency, or getting someone else to call on her behalf, unless she was genuinely in need of emergency services.

It also bans her from leaving any location specified during any call requiring emergency services.

She is also not allowed to verbally abuse emergency services staff - over the phone or in person - or be in possession of any bladed articles, razor or razor blades in any public place within Bassetlaw.

She is not allowed to enter the Kilton Golf Course, hang around on any bridges in Bassetlaw or being with Megan Tett in any public place.

Ayscough has also been warned not to act or incite others to act in an anti-social manner to any person in Nottinghamshire.

If Ayscough breaks the order she could face a custodial sentence, the court heard on January 20.

PC Julie Armstrong, from Worksop police station, said: “I am pleased that the judge has given a criminal behaviour order to a woman who needs to learn that this kind of behaviour is unacceptable.

“Megan Anyscough has made numerous calls to the emergency services asking for them to attend. When they do attend she cannot be found.

“This wastes valuable resources and time when we can be helping people who really need it.”
