Odd requests of British embassies

The British Foreign and Commonwealth Office reports some of the wonderfully odd requests its received at its embassies around the world:

In the last six months staff have been asked for a telephone number for Phil Collins and Prince Charles's shoe size.

Another request was from a man stranded at the airport by his dominatrix…

* A man called the consulate in Florida to report that there were ants in his holiday villa and asked for advice on what he should do

* A man asked consular staff in Dubai to meet his dog on arrival at customs and help it through the customs process
