Snow cuts crime

The snowy winter has meant the number of burglaries in Sweden's second city have fallen by half, according to news agency TT.

Only 38 break-ins were reported in Gothenburg in January 2011, less than half the number in the last snow-free January in 2008.

The snow makes burglars' tracks easy to trace, police officers say.
