Police were called in to stop a massive game of hide and seek at Ikea yesterday.
Officers rushed out to the branch of the furniture store in Braehead, Glasgow, after reports of people turning up to the shop and hiding in cupboards, fridges, and beds.
The bizarre story comes after more than 2,000 people signed up to a Facebook group set up to take the childhood game into the Swedish megastore.
Another 10,000 enthusiasts also stated they were ‘interested’ in taking part in the event.
Sadly for them, however, the store’s management got wind of what was going on.
According to reports, users in the event page began posting comments saying they had witnessed police turning away people away at the store’s entrance.
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland confirmed that five officers attended the store to assist staff before the game was abandoned.
