Pants, polar bears and a medieval treasure trove feature in The Local's pictorial review of the last seven days.

On Sunday cities across Germany took place in the worldwide “No Pants Subway Ride” which made for some unusual scenes on the country’s public transport network.

Temperatures remained mild for the trouserless passengers, but Germany’s mild winter is having serious repercussions on its ski industry.

The week in pictures also features the twin polar bear cubs who are now making international headlines and a man who won a radio competition 44 years after sending off the answer on a postcard.
