During Sunday night something really strange happened - that no one can really explain. A radio and TV mast outside Borås snapped and fell down. A video that shows how masked men are climbing the mast is now investigated by the police.
The 332 meter high radio and television mast is the Häglaredsmasten, outside Borås.
- It was as if a bomb struck, it was a hell of a bang, says Stefan Brögge, who lives nearby, to P4 Sjuhärad.
Erik Jullander says to Aftonbladet that the area looks like a wreck site after a plane crash or something similar, and that two-thirds of the mast fell straight into the woods.
- There was no wind. It has been here for over 50 years and has survived the storm Gudrun, says Jullander, 36, who lives in the area.
That the mast is broken is causing safety hazard in many ways. The mast namely holds a Rachel transmitter which is the communication system used by police, the fire brigade and the coast guard.
Now a truck is sent to Borås, with an extra transmitter to use as an emergency channel.
The place is now cordoned off and police are investigating what may have happened.
- It could be anything. Technicians will come to the site during the day, we'll see what they say, says Henrik Sterner, duty officer at Gothenburg police, to Göteborgs-Posten.
Sterner also says that he has never experienced anything like this.
On May 12, a clip was posted on Youtube showing masked men climbing the mast. The clip was removed during Monday morning. Now police are working to identify the people in the clip and examine if they have anything to do with it.
Taking out the communication system used by the police - a good idea if planning something big and illegal.
