Tune in to the next episode of 999: What’s Your Emergency at 9pm on Monday 26 September on Channel 4.

This episode explores the tangled lives of people whose relationships have brought them into direct contact with the nation’s emergency services and the role that police and ambulance staff play when matters of the heart clash with matters of law.

PCs Bryony Hancock and Charlotte Wilson are called to a Saturday night lover’s tiff in Crewe before heading to help a young woman who’s been assaulted in her own home by her partner. After arresting the woman’s boyfriend, PC Hancock’s next challenge is to get a statement from the shaken victim.

It's often after a relationship has ended that troubles seem to arise. In custody, tears of remorse can be heard through the corridors after a man is arrested for spray-painting abusive words about his ex-girlfriend over the outside walls of her house.

999: What’s Your Emergency? focuses on the work of police and paramedics in Cheshire. The series follows incidents from the moment the 999 call is made to the arrival of the frontline police and paramedics - the hard-working men and women who protect us from ourselves and each other while seeing us as we really are. They talk with honesty and wit about the ever-increasing challenges of modern Britain.
