Julia and Mat Taylor were watching television with their newborn baby fast asleep when they heard a loud noise outside. A neighbour who went to see what happened walked the driver from his vehicle back to the Taylors house. When she called 111, Mrs Taylor was informed there would be a delay because police had a number of high priority call-outs, such as family violence incidents, suicide attempts, a mental health incident, and reports of fighting. Mrs Taylor said the 111 operator asked them to keep the man at their property for as long as possible until police could get there. A police spokeswoman said they gave this advice as police were very busy. •Turn to page 7 3 1 1 1 New Brighton 1 & 2 / 274 Travis Rd For Sale Unit 1 - $419,000 Unit 2 - $429,000 View by appointment Phone Mark O’Loughlin M 021 339 078 P 03 352 0352 Email: Great Value Buying!
