The Control Voice was the unnamed radio operator at Westmorland Police Control who passed on instructions to the patrol cars to intercept the vehicle from the Searle and Ormerod Coach Company which was carrying the residents of the Street on their outing to the Lake District. The itinery from the coach company stated that the circular route was the M6 to Kendal, Shap, Eamont Bridge, Ullswater, Patterdale, Troutbeck and Windermere but Ray Langton had forced a vote on the coach for it to turn off the A6 at Levens Bridge and head straight for Windermere. Not knowing this the police were looking in the wrong place. A later report said that the coach had been spotted in Patterdale and would be travelling along Kirkstone Pass.

The role is notable for being voiced by Diana Davies, three years before she assumed the regular role in the programme as Corner Shop assistant Norma Ford.
