Emergency Numbers:

999 - The main emergency number
Calls are free, and 999 can be dialled from a locked mobile phone.
112 - Another emergency number
This operates exactly the same as 999 and directs you to exactly the same emergency call centre.
The important thing about 112 is that it will work on a mobile phone anywhere in the world. In the UK, 112 also works on landline phones.

101 can also be used to give information about a crime committed, or to contact the police with a general enquiry.
