Sex toy triggers police alert
Police called to a flat in Berlin by a neighbour who complained someone was using an electric drill in the middle of the night smashed down the door - to find a sex toy.
The vibrator had switched itself on and was jiggling around on the floor, according to a report in the Berlin Kurier newspaper.
Officers who answered the desperate call of the neighbour tried to contact the 23-year-old woman whose flat it was
But they could not get a response, and eventually decided to break in the door in an attempt to find out what was going on inside.
"You could hear the noise out on the street," one neighbour was quoted as saying.
The woman now faces a bill for the smashed door - and some funny looks from her neighbours - when she returns home.
