A huge moving image of a laughing Adolf Hitler has prompted a shocked Berlin driver to call the police.

Officers say they received a call about the apparition, which turned out to be part of an art installation.

The incident was a test for a video light show in which the faces of more than a dozen famous people tied to Berlin's history are projected on to buildings in the centre of the German capital.

Displays of Nazi imagery that glorify the Third Reich are forbidden in Germany, but police spokeswoman Valeska Jakubowski said the Hitler apparition was covered by exceptions granted for artistic works.

The installation is part of a month-long light show that starts on Friday and runs until October 23.
