Man charged over Southampton mosque bomb hoax

A 43-year-old man has been charged with making hoax bomb threats against mosques in the Southampton area.

Timothy Bingham, of Fairbairn Walk, Chandlers Ford, has been charged with committing a bomb hoax.

A call was made to police on Saturday night but police said they were satisfied the threat was not credible.

Mr Bingham, who appeared before Southampton magistrates, was remanded back into custody, to reappear before the court on Thursday.
