A major police operation was launched in southern Sweden on Tuesday after a man was reported to be seen shooting a gun into a restaurant.

A witness alerted police in Landskrona, who sent several teams from the north-west Skåne area.

Officers sealed off the area and investigated the issue, but it turned out that the weapon the man had been shooting was a water pistol.

Police said they had decided it was better to be safe than sorry, following a number of attacks in bars in the Landskrona area in recent months.
