London: The British consulate has revealed that in the recent past, travellers have made a number of weird requests like asking for the telephone number of Phil Collins and Prince Charles’ shoe size.

A man rang the consulate in Sydney to ask what clothes he should pack for his holiday, while another in Sofia, Bulgaria, wanted the consulate to sell his house for him, the BBC reported.

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 and a lady complained to the embassy in Moscow about a loud buzzing noise in her apartment.

Other bizarre appeals made to the Foreign office include one from a man asking a consulate in Greece for information on how to go about putting a chicken coop in his garden.
