West Ham supporters might feel like their team’s performances have been criminal of late - but that’s not a reason to dial 999.

Following yesterday’s 2-0 defeat to Watford, Essex Police have urged frustrated supporters not to call the emergency number to complain about the Hammers.

The force control room tweeted: “Ringing 999 because @WestHamUtd have lost again and you aren’t sure what to do is not acceptable! It is a complete waste of our time. £999foremergencies only.”

With David Moyes coming in to replace Slaven Bilic as manager, many fans hoped the club’s fortunes would turn at the weekend.

A victory at Vicarage Road - where the travelling support directed their anger towards the directors’ box and dugout, including displaying banners calling for the board’s sacking - would have hauled the Hammers out of the relegation zone.
