Clifford Fleming, a 65-year-old a former soldier from Clitheroe, has been jailed for three years for a bomb blackmail plot. He posted a note into a bank's letterbox overnight, telling them that unless £150,000 was left in an alley nearby, he would plant a bomb in a busy shopping centre.

Worried staff called the police, and eventually Fleming was caught by a crossword puzzle.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
