A businessman has been sentenced to seven years in prison for the manufacture of fake bomb detectors.

Gary Bolton, from Chatham, was found guilty last month. The court heard he sold the devices which were nothing more than boxes with handles and antennae.

The prosecution said he sold them for up to £10,000 each, claiming they could detect explosives.

Ben Geoghegan reports.
