A French national created a furore at Torp Sandefjord airport on Wednesday, when he claimed that he had a bomb in his shoe.

“At first, the security staff didn’t take what the man said seriously, but when they heard him repeat that he had a bomb, they chose to call the police”, John Nysæther, Vestfold police district’s operations leader tells Østlands Posten.

The paper writes that he told police that he made the threat, because of being fed up with security checks at airports. The man was arrested and taken to Tønsberg police station, where he is now awaiting possible questioning.
