West Ham United fans have been urged to stop calling 999 to complain about their team by the Essex police force, following yet another disappointing defeat at Watford on Sunday.

The Hammers supporters witnessed their side crumble to a 2-0 loss at Vicarage Road, with unrest within the travelling contingent towards owners David Gold and David Sullivan, who were both in attendance, evident before and throughout the 90 minutes. 

The result left the Claret and Blues still within the clutches of the Premier League relegation zone, one point from 17th and safety which is currently occupied by now manager-less West Bromwich Albion. 

However, it seemed following their seventh defeat of the campaign, and with only two wins on the board, some West Ham fans saw fit to go too far and dial 999 in order to share their current grievances. 


The calls caused Essex Police Force Control Room to tweet and urge the Hammers supporters who had done so to stop backing up phone lines in what could potentially prove costly for those with real emergencies. 

"Ringing 999 because WestHamUtd have lost again and you aren't sure what to do is not acceptable!", the social media statement via Essex Police's official Twitter account read.

"It is a complete waste of our #999foremergencies only."

The defeat marked a disappointing start for new boss David Moyes who was instated until the end of the season during the international break following the sacking of Slaven Bilic. 

The Scot was left less than pleased with his new side's performance on Saturday and faces three of the current top six in the lead up to Christmas.
