Man jailed over Doncaster council bomb attempt

A man who admitted making a bomb and leaving it outside a council building has been jailed indefinitely.

James Wilson placed a device made out of canisters and screws on the steps of Concord House in Doncaster last April.

Wilson, 43, of Exchange Street, Balby Bridge, Doncaster, was told at the town's crown court he would serve at least three-and-a-half years in jail.

Wilson had earlier admitted to making an explosive substance with intent to endanger property.

The building where the device was found, which is used by a number of Doncaster council departments, was sealed off as Army bomb disposal experts made it safe.

Concorde House was empty at the time of the incident but a small hotel nearby was evacuated.
