The police enlisted the help of a dog patrol to find the Swede, who was interrogated and is now suspected of illegal border crossing.

- Then he was sent back to the brother country, says Marstad.

According to the latest border rules, the border crossing at Bjørkebekk is only open between 08.00 and 15.30.

After several people crossed the border without regard to infection risks, the Norwegian police have placed physical barriers at several border crossings.
