Swedish riot police speed up escalator to disperse unruly soccer fans (VIDEO)

It looks like quick thinking Swedish riot police turned up the speed on a stadium escalator just before soccer fans — involved in a volatile stand-off with the authorities — took their unruliness to another level.

The fans, from the town of Helsingborg, were filmed hurling abuse at riot police as they crowded to get on an underground train.

But suddenly they are caught by surprise when the escalator they were stood on began to speed up without warning.

Fans, who had previously been doing their best to goad the police, were sent whizzing away down the moving stairwell until none of them are left.

It is unclear whether police were able to intentionally increase the speed of the escalator to disperse the crown or if it malfunctioned due to overcrowding.

Either way it's funny.
