Bomb Hoax Call Evacuates Bentley Bridge

Police are investigating a bomb hoax which prompted the evacuation of businesses in Bentley Bridge Saturday 30 May 2015. Police were called at around 1.35pm following reports that a security threat had been made by phone to staff at the Nickelodeon pub.

Officers arrived at the scene to find a full evacuation of local businesses in progress.

Although the action was not initiated by police, officers worked quickly to establish the incident had been prompted by a malicious call and supported staff in returning the site to normality.

A serious offence which has negatively impacted on hundreds of people has been committed.

Work is now underway to find the person responsible. This includes working with phone companies to trace the caller. The caller is also believed to be behind a similar hoax call made to the New Pear Tree pub on Cannock Road, Scotlands made minutes later.

The hoaxer, or anyone who knows who they were should contact us on 101 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

About the Author

I have nearly always lived in Wednesfield, I moved away briefly but missed the sense of community and so swiftly moved back! I honestly believe Wednesfield has more to offer than the residents often give it credit for and wanted to do something to redress the balance of negativity around where we live. Working for a media company using the internet and social media as a marketing tool I had the skills and passion to help set up WV11.co.uk so did!
