Some sensible perspective on that ‘Met spent £35,000 on calling the speaking clock’ story, from James Ball in The Guardian:

Some examples: assuming everyone in the Met drinks two cups of tea per shift, the force’s annual bill on teabags alone will top £65,000. Allowing a modest four toilet rolls per year per officer gives a yearly bill of £34,000+. I’d keep going, but we may need to save some of these for a boost on a slow news day.
