Norway police race each other using shields as sledges

Police in Norway found new fun ways to make good use of their riot gear, by staging a sledge race between two neighbouring police stations.

Officers in Heimdal went up against their colleagues from Trondheim in a race down a local street and then shared the video on social media.

"The everyday life of the police is often characterised by seriousness," Heimdal police wrote in a Facebook post, adding the race was held on a quiet night.

"Therefore, it is important to occasionally loosen a little on the tie, disconnect and have fun," the post read.
