999 crews rush to model train accident

275x250.jpg Two ambulance crews and a police car rushed to the scene of a model train accident after reportedly mishearing a 999 call.

It's claimed the 999 teams turned up at Canvey Island, Essex thinking they were attending a military railway not a miniature railway.

Staff at Canvey Railway had called for an ambulance after three passengers fell from the model train and suffered minor injuries.

But the train enthusiasts were shocked when the police and ambulance turned up to deal with the minor situation.

A spokesman for the attraction told the Telegraph: "The emergency crews said they thought they had been called to a military railway, which is why there was such a big response."
