No clues over bomb

POLICE still do not know why a hoax bomb was planted outside a house in Rothwell last month.

Bomb disposal experts were called to carry out a controlled explosion of the device found in Cecil Street on Sunday, March 11.

It contained a number of multi-coloured wires connected to a battery, but was fake.

But despite appealing for information at the time, police are no clearer about where it came from and why it was planted.

A spokesman said the force was still seeking help from the public about the incident.

Anyone who can help should call police on 03000 111222 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
