A TEENAGER made a bogus call to the ambulance service claiming he was with someone who was not breathing.

The incident led to ambulances and rapid response vehicles rushing to the scene, as well as police officers.

The hoax call was made by 18-year-old Ryan Law, of Barnhill Road, Dalgety Bay, who submitted a guilty plea by letter at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on July 22, at Wayfarers Way, Dalgety Bay, he made a call to the ambulance service claiming that a 17-year-old male there was not breathing, knowing that to be false and that no-one there required urgent medical assistance.

He also admitted he induced the ambulance service to deploy two ambulances and two rapid response vehicles to that address.

Law further admitted that he told two police officers falsely that he had not called for an ambulance, causing them to conduct a search of the area in an effort to find who had made the call, depriving the public of their services.

Sheriff Alastair Brown deferred sentence until March 26 for Law to appear in court.
