Officers who answered the desperate call of the neighbour tried repeatedly to contact the 23-year-old woman whose flat it was, according to a report in the Berlin Kurier on Saturday.

But they could not get a response, and eventually decided to break in the door in an attempt to find out what was going on in the flat.

“You could hear the noise out on the street,” one neighbour was quoted as saying.

When the officers smashed their way into the flat they found nothing more dangerous than the vibrator which was doing its best on the floor.

Now the young woman is not only going to have to face her neighbours when she returns home – she will also have to pay for the smashed door, the paper said.

Too bad for her. In the US she could possibly sue the department for the damage to repay the owner of the building along with recompense from the police agency for humiliation. After all she did not call the police only the property owner did.

" ¦quot;You could hear the noise out on the street,¦quot; one neighbour is quoted as saying."

I recommend Larry Flynt do a complete investigation. He needs to gather evidence and pictures of the crime scene. He needs to find all the players and get all the names, nothing can be left to chance. Nothing is as dangerous as a wild unrestrained dildo!

Finally some good news. With all the crises and wars around I almost though the world is going to an end.

Where is the important information - like brand name and where you can get one that is that 'active'? ;)

""DMD" Dildos of Mass Destruction"

What do the residents of this apartment do when they want to have sex? It's quiet in the evening, so if a Dildo would call Police, what happens in the evening?

Or are all the residents of this apartment senior citizens and the woman who had her door torn away by Policemen was the only person who was sexually active?

But pretty German news - it describes how peaceful Germany is and also how your neighbors are always watching you.

Not quite everything, Californian. This reminds me of Kryten's "Archie" from Red Dwarf: http://bit.ly/bdKKKp
