Three faint during post-Xmas sales

Security guards and police could not deal with the crowds who packed Kista Galleria on the day after Christmas, and three people fainted in the crush.

“It got very crowded. We have officers on the scene to calm people down, but right now it’s fine,” says police spokesperson Albin Näverberg to news agency TT.

He says it is not normal for them to have to send in officers to deal with a situation when a shopping centre has a sale. Kista Galleria is in northern Stockholm. 

The three women who fainted woke up soon after, and they are not reported to be injured or ill.
