New security doors at Swedish National Police headquarters are embarrassing portly users. Designed to let only one person through at a time, the doors have a built-in scale.

The security doors were supposed to be set at 350 pounds. "We'll have to get that fixed," said police spokeswoman Linda Widmark.
