A convicted murderer, who killed a journalist on board his submarine, has been surrounded by police and arrested after trying to escape from prison.
Danish police have said a man has been arrested after an attempted escape and the area has been cordoned off.
Local media reported the situation continued for at least an hour but the convict has now been driven away by officers.
Photos from the scene in Albertslund, Copenhagen, show Madsen sitting against a fence surrounded by armed police.
Two officers lie on their stomachs on the ground in front of him and it looks like he is wearing a belt-like object around his stomach.
Madsen had threatened prison guards with a “pistol-like object” and also claimed to have a bomb, according to Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet.
