A woman has admitted threatening to blow up a police station in north east Lincolnshire.

Joanne Peacher, 45, told an emergency call handler she planned to "use an explosive device to cause damage to Immingham police station".

At Grimsby Magistrates' Court, Ms Peacher admitted making the call on Saturday and was given a 12-month community order.

A spokesman for Humberside Police said it takes bomb threats very seriously.

"Anybody found to be making such calls to the police will be dealt with accordingly," he said.
