The week in pictures

German beer festival Oktoberfest came to a close on Sunday (6 October), with nearly 100,000 drinking vessels stolen throughout the event.

Around 6.3 million million people attended the beer festival in Germany this year, but attendees drank just 7.3 million litres in the festival tents, 200,000 fewer than in 2018.

Stewards also confiscated 96,912 beer mugs (2018: 101,000) from souvenir hunters in the tents and at the exits of the festival grounds.
