911 ! - Reminds me of a time I reported a vehicle fire in Avenue Road,
Nechells - only to be told they didn't have an Avenue Road in Nechells but
one in Aston - it's the same street, different ends. Of course the fire
engine went all the way to Aston then drove back to Nechells to deal with
the fire.
