Schools bomb hoaxes: Bodycam shows George Duke-Cohan arrest

Bodycam footage of the moment a teenage bomb hoaxer was arrested in his bedroom has been released by police.

George Duke-Cohan, 19, sparked nationwide panic and a transatlantic investigation after sending UK and US schools threatening emails, leading to hundreds being evacuated.

He also tricked a US airport, saying an inbound flight had been hijacked.

Duke-Cohan was jailed for three years at Luton Crown Court.

His arrest at his home in Watford, Hertfordshire, followed an investigation by the National Crime Agency in the UK, with help from the FBI.
