Around 170 volunteers dived into the fast flowing Limmat and fished out 64 bicycles, 6 electric scooters, 15 shopping carts as well as thousands of cans and bottles.

So far as expected – but also, they found a gas stove, a stroller, vacuum cleaner, garden tables and crutches.

Police were called when they discovered a rifle and ammunition.

In all about 50 cubic meters of rubbish was pulled out.
