Businessman Gary Bolton 'sold fake bomb detectors'

2 July 2013 Last updated at 20:56 BST

A businessman created a company with a £3m annual turnover selling homemade bomb detectors that did not work, a court has heard.

The devices made by Gary Bolton, 47, at his Kent home and company offices, were nothing more than boxes with handles and antennae, the Old Bailey was told.

Yet he sold them for up to £10,000 each, claiming they could detect explosives, the prosecution allege.

Mr Bolton, of Redshank Road, Chatham, Kent, denies two charges of fraud.
