The inhabitants of a part of Malmö have the dubious honour of living in the most dangerous place in Sweden, according to a new police survey.

The Södra Innerstaden, or south-central, district of Malmö is the most crime-ridden place in Sweden, police say.

Residents of the area responding to a police questionnaire complained of rowdy gangs of youths, vandalism and litter.

Open drug use is a "very evident problem," residents said, as was street drunkenness. Women being groped was also a common complaint.

Police blamed the area's poor reputation on the density of pubs and clubs.

"It's an area with lots of bars and entertainment establishments. There are people around in the area all day," said Ulla Ardermark, Malmö Police commander, to Metro.
