An explosion has occurred on Södermalm in Stockholm. The police have a large effort at the scene.

– There is something that has exploded in connection with a property. There is, of course, damage to the property, partly on the entrance floor and partly window panes that have been smashed, says Jonas Widmark, RLC officer at the police.

Adjacent properties have also been damaged.

What is behind the explosion is currently unclear. The police have started a preliminary investigation into public dangerous devastation.

– Then we have to investigate whether there is a crime behind it or not, we don’t know for sure at the moment, says Jonas Widmark.

There are currently no reports of personal injuries. The alarm came just after midnight.
