Vibrating sex toy causes bomb scare in Germany

Bomb disposal experts were called out on an unusual mission in Germany this week — to defuse a vibrating sex toy.

In a country where unexploded Second World War ordnance is still regularly found, disposal teams are always on the alert.

On Tuesday, they rushed to answer an emergency call from a video games arcade in the usually sleepy town of Halberstadt, when an employee raised the alarm after hearing a strange buzzing sound coming from a bin in the men’s lavatories.
