  • Carelessly parked electric scooters are causing a big problem for snow plough drivers and salt gritters in central Gothenburg.

  • After Tuesday's snowfall in western Sweden, the sheer number of electric scooters parked haphazardly on pavements and squares has proved a problem for winter road maintenance workers.

  • "Expensive and a huge waste of time", according to Håkan Johansson, the planning manager at Gothenburg City's traffic department.
