The Swedish Navy has released a picture of a foreign submarine spotted in the Saltsjöbaden river of Lake Malaren, near Stockholm.

The vessel was seen by Hanna Harge, a local entrepreneur, on the morning of the 13 April this year while she was out walking her dog. She took pictures and called the authorities, to tell them to keep their submarines better hidden.

The Swedish Navy, however, had no knowledge of any such exercise in the region, nor reports from other nations as to its existence.

Authorities have taken the pictures from the Harge family in order to identify the craft, as part of a larger investigation into the event. The proceedings of which are classified, with the results expected to be sent to the Swedish Government within two months.
