Police Called to Ikea to Stop Massive Game of Hide and Seek

Perhaps as many as 3,000 people were planning to descend upon this Ikea in Glasgow, Scotland in order to play hide and seek together. When store management learned of this plan, they summoned the police to quash the fun. The Scotsman reports:

At some point on Saturday, staff at Braehead became aware of a Facebook thread suggesting some 3,000 youths were about to descend on the store.
As well as drafting in extra security, Ikea contacted Police Scotland, who dispatched five officers.
Police remained at the store until it closed at 8pm.
