Bells from hell ring out

Townsville Bulletin - - Front Page -

VI­DAR Aarhus thought it was a lo­cal tra­di­tion but af­ter hear­ing the Sal­hus Church bells in Ber­gen, Nor­way, ring for five hours on Christ­mas Eve, he de­cided to make some tele­phone calls.

‘‘I was wor­ried that my chil­dren wouldn’t be able to sleep,’’ Aarhus said. ‘‘It was pretty late. Af­ter talk­ing to a few friends I knew some­thing was wrong,’’ he said. The priest, Arvid An­dreas Fosse, apol­o­gised to the neigh­bours af­ter the bells stopped.
