This is the Staffordshire schoolgirl who rang 999 to tell police to take her mother to prison.
Ruby Pitchford, aged just six, managed to dial emergency services and told a cop on the other end of the line to “take her mummy to jail”.
The schoolgirl, from Staffs, made the call minutes after the pair had been play-fighting at home.
She rang Staffordshire Police when mum Vicky Pitchford was in the other room.
Vicky told our sister title StokeonTrentLive she was gobsmacked when Ruby ran in brandishing her mobile.
And she was even more shocked at the realisation a police officer was on the other end of the receiver.
Vicky, 29, said: “We do a lot of play-fighting together. As she was trying to get away, she was crawling across the floor, so I got her foot and dragged her towards me and that was that. I thought she was over it.
“When we were done I went upstairs to clean my bedroom and Ruby walked in and said the police were on the phone. I was like ‘whatever’ because I didn’t believe her.
“She put the phone on loudspeaker and I heard a man say ‘hello’ so I took the phone off her and saw that she had actually dialled 999.
“I spoke to the male copper and he said ‘your daughter told us to take you to mummy jail’ because you grabbed her foot.
“I couldn’t believe it when I heard the voice on the other end of the phone – and Ruby was running around the room laughing.”
The officer ‘quizzed’ Vicky before Ruby confirmed that nothing was wrong.
Vicky added: “The operator was laughing down the phone. We were hysterical and I was laughing for a long time.
“I have a lot of panic attacks so I have taught her to dial 999 because sometimes there are times when I can’t breathe so she may have to call them but this time she took it to her own advantage.
“In a way I am proud that she has remembered how to dial the number, although it’s a bit silly.
“If I ever need help she is there and able to get that help for me and that is why she has got her own phone as well.
“When we came off the phone to the police I had a word with her that she has got to take the number seriously because it is for emergencies only.”
