Now I'm sure we all have questions we want too ask but don't want too look silly.

My two are

If somebody is on fire (like fully engulfed) who do you call ambulance or fire crew?

If you get drunk and then go and take a horse out for a ride on the main roads what would be the charge? Would it be driving drunk or something else?

If any knows the answers, I'd be grateful and you can add your own!

With the fire situation of call 999 ask for fire and them explain. I'm sure they would send an ambulance too.
With the second question, assuming it's your own horse, I don't think you are committing a crime but I'm no expert.

You don't need a licence to drive one of those motorised scooters and I've seen pissed people driving those.

I think they'd send both for the first. As the fire fighters could deal with the fire and ambulance with the resulting injuries and transporting to hospital.

For the horse one; It is an offence under Section 30(1) to ride a bicycle, tricycle or cycle having 4 or more wheels whilst under the influence of drink. Pursuant to Section 12 of the Licensing Act 1872, it is also an offence to be riding a cycle or to be in charge of any carriage, horse or cattle when drunk.

Number 1, the police as by the time anyone arrives, it will be a potential crime scene, at least a scene where evidence may need to be preserved. Neither the ambulance nor fire service can do much for charred remains.

Number 2,

this covers it too

1971 CHAPTER 48

"Possessing anything with intent to destroy or damage property.

A person who has anything in his custody or under his control intending without lawful excuse to use it or cause or permit another to use it—
(a)to destroy or damage any property belonging to some other person; or

(b)to destroy or damage his own or the user’s property in a way which he knows is likely to endanger the life of some other person;

shall be guilty of an offence."
