THE UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office has released a list of this year’s top ten bizarre requests from Brits abroad.
One concerned citizen planning a move to Spain rang the consular over fears he would encounter nudists walking the streets.
A homesick expat asked where he could buy English bacon while a lady in Lebanon rang to recruit an English butler.
Half a million calls were made to the FCO’s consular service last year –which provides emergency help to Britons in trouble overseas.
The service helped 3,250 Brits who were hospitalised, 4,770 who were arrested, and the families of 3,670 who died overseas.
