Language problems for Nuremberg police/Polizei in Nürnberg kann kein Dänisch

Udo Vetter in law blog weist auf eine Meldung der Polizeipresse.

According to a report of the Central Franconia police news, on the evening of June 22nd a Danish couple driving north from Austria arrived in the city of Nuremberg after following a diversion. The 68-year-old husband park on Leipziger Platz, took the car key with him (!) and went into an underground public lavatory, whence he failed to find his car. Three hours of wandering later, he arrived at a police station, but as he spoke neither German nor English, communication was difficult – despite the help of an interpreter who offered her services free of charge by phone (who might this interpreter be, I wonder). The Danish woman locked in the car had a mobile phone with her but hadn’t switched it on. The couple were not reunited until 1 a.m., at which time they decided to sleep the rest of the night in the car.
