When the police were alerted to the station in the BSG district of Leutzsch on Saturday morning, they were amazed at what awaited them there.

In the underpass of the railway tracks between Gustav-Esche-Strasse and Rathenaustrasse, riot police officers found two walls stacked one behind the other, on which was written in black writing “Life is like a box of chocolates.

Stone on stone, between already cured construction foam. It was not possible to simply dismantle the walls of the tunnel – the fastest connection between the platform and the Alfred-Kunze-Sportpark – which had apparently been erected overnight.

The surprise effect then occurred in the space between the walls: “The foreigners had deposited horse manure there”, confirmed the spokesman of the police, Olaf Hoppe, questioned by TAG24.

The wall fell with a hammer and a lot of muscle strength, an official carried the individual Ytong stones outside with a wheelbarrow.

City cleanup workers also removed horse manure. Several used construction foam wrappers were found near the crime scene – evidently the glue used.

By noon, the tunnel had been cleared of remains and could be freed again.

At 12:30 p.m., locomotive fans meet at the Schützenhof on Hans-Driesch-Strasse to walk together to the stadium. Organizers have called ahead that only the 500 ticket holders should take part in the fan march as early checks are to be expected.

On Saturday afternoon from 3.30 p.m., city rivals Chemie and Lok Leipzig meet in the sold-out AKS with 4,999 spectators. For both of them, it’s the penultimate day of the Northeast Regional League for nothing more. MDR TV broadcasts live on TV and in Diffusion.
