People in Sylt, an island in northern Germany, and their guests had to deal with punks who arrived on the island on a 9 euro ticket and whose noise disrupted the wedding ceremony of politician Christian Lindner and the journalist Franca Lehfeldt. Police had to be called in to calm the commotion. Around 35 punks were outside of the hotel in Keitum being loud but peaceful, according to a police spokesperson.
The spokesperson told welt.de that the group’s objective was probably to interrupt the politician’s celebrations. However, the punks had gotten the wrong hotel. Just before midnight, the police dispelled the rowdy crowd and put them on the train to Westerland.
Lindner, Germany’s Minister of Finances, and his bride Franca Lehfedt had had their wedding day disrupted since the morning on Saturday. For example, they saw an unauthorised drone flying over the church where the ceremony was supposed to take place later that day. However, its owner was nowhere to be found.
According to the spokesperson, police dogs also detected active explosive also on the church’s perimeters. The spokesperson made no comment on the number of police present at the wedding ceremony.
