Bikini-clad Swedish policewoman ‘stops thief’

Always on duty…

A bikini-clad Swedish police officer has been praised for tackling a suspected thief while she was off-duty sunbathing with friends in Stockholm.

Mikaela Kellner told the Aftonbladet daily that she and a fellow officer pursued the man when they realised he had taken one of their mobile phones.

She told the paper that she would have intervened “even if she were naked”.

A photo of the incident on Ms Kellner’s Instagram page has attracted more than 9,000 likes in less than two days.

The incident is said to have taken place in Stockholm’s Ralambshov Park on Wednesday, where the off-duty policewoman was sunbathing with friends.

The group was approached by a man who claimed to be selling publications on behalf of the homeless.

Norway: Wealthy man ‘forgot’ boat in Swedish harbour

Must be very rich to forget something like that!

A wealthy man has come forward to claim a luxury boat that has been floating in a Swedish harbour for at least two years, after he apparently forgot all about it.

The boat’s Norwegian owner says he intended to sell the vessel in 2012 – and was under the impression that he had, Expressen GT newspaper reports. The boat, said to be worth as much as $108,000 (£65,000), was moored in the Swedish town of Stromstad, close to Norway’s southern border. The keys were tied to the railings for all to see.
