Maidstone bomb hoax: Second man arrested

A second man has been arrested by police investigating a bomb hoax at a Kent supermarket.

The Morrisons store, in Sutton Road, Maidstone, had to be evacuated on 10 December following a phone call reporting a bomb had been left inside.

A controlled explosion was subsequently carried out on a suspicious package found in one of the aisles.

The man, who is from the Maidstone area, was arrested for an offence under the Malicious Communications Act.

Before Christmas, a 47-year-old man was arrested in connection with the hoax and bailed until 25 January.
