Bomb scare cuts short Germany's Next Top Model finale

A German broadcaster has said that thousands of people were evacuated from an arena tonight, after a bomb threat at a live television transmission of Germany's Next Top Model.

The evacuation occurred as they recorded the live tenth season finale of Germany’s Next Top Model.

The local police chief told Bild in Germany that an unidentified woman called in the threat, leading officers to evacuate the building as a precaution. No explosive devices have been found so far.

The network ProSieben confirmed that everyone got out safely. This includes judges Heidi Klum, Thomas Hayo and Wolfgang Joop.

German reports have said that the live broadcast of the Heidi Klum series suddenly cut off midway through the finale. Initially, the station blamed a technical malfunction, but it has since been confirmed that the entire theater was evacuated because of a bomb threat.
