Episode 1

999: What's Your Emergency? returns for a new series focusing on the work of the police, paramedics and fire service in Wiltshire. A once traditional county, Wiltshire is changing fast, as residents and emergency services encounter many of biggest problems that modern Britain faces. Never before have Wiltshire's emergency services been so needed and yet so stretched. The county's front line emergency workers talk with honesty and wit about the increasing challenges of working in a changing Britain, while victims, patients and criminals reveal the personal stories that have driven them to be at the centre of a 999 call-out. During the two weeks after the Brexit referendum there was a 500% rise in race hate crimes across the UK. This episode examines the rise in racially aggravated hate crimes in Wiltshire. Age, it sadly seems, is no barrier to the abuse.
