«We detained Color Festival in Hirtshals and stopped all loading and losing,» said Helge Otto Mathisen, head of information at Color Line, to TV 2 Nettavisen.
The police in Hjørring got a call from Tele Denmarks SOS central at 8:45 a.m. Wednesday. The central had received a bomb treat against the ferry system between Hirtshals and Norway.
«Even if the threat was somewhat unclear, we took it very serious and started a trace of the telephone call,» said Asbjørn Nielsen at the police department in Hjørring, to TV 2 Nettavisen. «It has been confirmed that the caller was a drunk and confused person.»
According to information obtained by TV 2 Nettavisen, the police tracked the conversation to a cell phone at a sailors home in the area.
