"At the same time, there was a slight build-up of smoke, which then led to around 50 customers and employees having to leave the business temporary,' a statement from the police read

"The staff responded well and correctly. It sprinkled quartzsand over the overheated battery so that smoke could be contained and sucked out after switching on the ventilation."

Police say forensic specialists are still examining the cause of the incident.
