Police in Oslo who responded to an emergency call after hearing screams from an apartment were shocked to find the howls belonged to a lone chess player displeased with his performance during a game.

The police received several calls on Monday evening after people heard screams coming from an apartment in the nation's capital.

Yet when a police patrol arrived to investigate, they found the screams had come from a male chess fan who was playing against a computer and had simply been out-moved.

Oslo police tweeted on their official social media page after the incident: “We’re at the place. Just a chess player frustrated by constantly losing against his own PC.”
