A 54 year- old man has appeared before Boston Magistrates today (January, 10) to face an allegation that he made a false telephone call to say there was a bomb placed in Camden Town Stables Market in London.

Steven Thomas Driver of Rosehip Road, Morton, Bourne was charged with ‘communicating to Lincolnshire Police information he knew or believed to be false, with the intention of inducing in that person or any other person a false belief that a bomb was present in Camden Town Stables Market, London’.

He entered no plea to the charge that he made thecall on September 16 last year from Bourne to Lincolnshire Police.

The court heard the charge was ‘too serious’ to be dealt with by them and Mr Driver was sent for

trial at Lincoln Crown Court on unconditional bail, with a first appearance on February 7.
