Privacy for emergency/call centre workers

Just noticed a thread on OUTeverywhere talking about Russell Brand phoning a crime hotline with a hoax call for `entertainment` and thus wasting police time. Should he be prosecuted for this?

Also, is it right for this to be broadcast when it’s basically a private, albeit internally recorded, conversation. It seems like it was at a concert or something – was it live? I know that some do it and ask for permission afterwards and some say `your friend xx put us up to it` – so at least they know who to gripe to.

If he didn’t get permission – should he have been charged? If he did -the person responsible for the hotline should be sacked.
