Red-faced anti-terror police have apologised after they cleared an airport terminal in Hamburg, Germany, in a bomb alert over a box of kinky sex toys.
The pink and orange cardboard box had been left behind by a forgetful passenger in the airport's Terminal 2. Police evacuated the building while bomb disposal experts examined the package with a robot probe.
But inside were a collection of saucy souvenirs from the city's sex quarter, including sperm-shaped shower gel ,a penis-shaped lollipop and a heart dedicated to someone called 'Mausi'. "We're trying to trace the owner, but naturally he or she may be reluctant to come forward," said a police spokesman.
"It's regrettable that the evacuation caused so much inconvenience for other passengers but unattended parcels don't always have such a funny ending," they added.
