Danish police said Wednesday that ferry services had resumed between Denmark and Germany after being briefly suspended because of an unspecified "threat".

While police did not detail the scare, Danish media reported that a person had made a bomb threat in a phone call to one of ferry operator Scandlines' service centers.

"All ferry operations have been suspended, and the ferries will be emptied as soon as the police allows them to go to port", a Scandlines spokesperson said earlier on Wednesday.

"We received a threat by telephone and we didn't have any more information than that so we suspended all traffic", Scandlines spokeswoman Anette Ustrup Svendsen told AFP.

'Police have checked out the first ferries and after inspection they have been authorised to start again, ' police said in a statement. All three countries have experienced deadly attacks in recent years, including truck-ramming assaults in Germany and Sweden.
