    There's an interesting story behind this: https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/ne...-bomb-14572170

    I was listening to this on the local news this afternoon whilst Mrs R was doing the shopping. - I'm not allowed in the supermarket with her!

    A couple of interesting points (may be fact or fiction) that I picked up...

    The guy was a well known 'yob' and known for graffiting everywhere. But that being naughty with a rattle can was a big step away from messing with explosives.

    He seemed to be somewhat a loner.

    It was alleged that he had just converted to Islam.

    I did notice that the programme host was treading very carefully with his words though.

    The suspect's been released on bail; I'm wondering if the crime under investigation isn't of the most serious kind: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england...shire-43907347

    It's the story of the 'distraction' controlled explosion so the authorities could get a goat out of the house that is still making me laugh.

    I thought that's what the reporter said on Midlands Today last night - I was convinced I hadn't heard correctly.
