A website that allowed users to share subtitles has been taken offline after the Swedish police raided two properties used by the service.

Undertexter had provided fan-made translations of film and TV show dialogue, which could be merged with video files to provide on-screen text.

A spokesman for the police told the BBC they had acted after investigating a complaint by copyright holders.
