Man arrested over 1999 Knightsbridge bomb threat

A man has been arrested on suspicion of making a bomb threat nearly 18 years ago.

The hoax was made on 10 November 1999 by a far-right group at a fast food restaurant on Brompton Road in Knightsbridge in west London.

A Met spokesman said a 36-year-old man was held at an address in Essex following a "forensic review of evidence seized from the scene".

He remains in custody at an east London police station.
