Police tape.

Police tape.

Have your say

A hoax caller who claimed there was a bomb planted at a Nottinghamshire police station has been given a suspended sentence.

Joshua Williams (20) of Newark Close, Mansfield, said he was dared to make the 999 call from his mobile at about 10.15pm on Saturday 9th August.

Although Williams hung up before leaving his name or any details officers were able to trace him because he had phoned emergency services from the same number a few weeks previously.
