A series of false siren alarms in Bern is annoying the residents – and worrying them at the same time.

The sirens wailed five times on Sunday evening and then again yesterday.

The main area affected was around Kirchenfeld.

Police say the siren has now been disconnected as engineers try to find the problem. In the past, such false alarms have been a software error.

But locals say they no longer trust them. One told the press what if it sounds for real – and we all ignore it?
