not sure if this is the right place to put this so mods please move if you see fit.
I've just been told about using 112 as the emergency telephone number instead of 999, has anyone else heard of this ?
apparently when you dial this number from anywhere in the world from a mobile phone, your position is triangulated and given to the emergency service of you choice.
Now this sounds like a great idea if something bad happens when you are out and about, maybe off the beaten track ( as long as you have reception )
quite a bit on google about it.
