Ofcom announces 116xxx number range

Not directly mobile-related but interesting nonetheless. Ofcom has announced a consultation about its plans to set aside six-digit numbers beginning 116 so that important services can use the same number range across the EU. For example, there'll be a 116000 hotline for missing children, 116111 for child helplines and 116123 for emotional support helplines. [Press release]
