Swedish Police Get Rid Of Football Hooligans By Firing Them Down Ultra Fast Escalators (Video)

By Alan Duffy

Not sure what the health & safety rules are in Sweden, but they certainly look rather flimsy. As tempers frayed in Stockholm after the local derby between Djurgården and AIK, fans from both sides squared up in a train station. However, with most of the fire-up supporters congregating on the escalators, the local police decided to speed up said escalators and fire the fans away from the flashpoint. Superb! Although, somehow, I can’t see this style of policing working on the London Underground, can you?

    Actually it was the local derby between Malmö and Helsingborg in southern Sweden. Also according to the train stations technical staff the escalator broke down causing it to speed up.

  6. Dean says:

    Do all escalators have the ability to go super fast or was this one built with special specifications? I wonder…
