Buxton bomb alert: Paul Gregory pleads guilty

Detectives sealed the property on Middletons Lane Six nearby properties were evacuated while police dealt with the device

A man has pleaded guilty after a device - believed to be explosive - was found under a car in a Norfolk village.

Six properties were evacuated in Coltishall Road, Buxton, last September, while Army bomb disposal officers dealt with the device.

Paul Gregory, 30, of Middleton's Lane, Hellesdon, pleaded guilty at Norwich Crown Court to making and having an explosive substance.

He will be sentenced at the end of the trial of a co-defendant in the case.

Milos Gontkovic, 26, of Northumberland Street, Norwich, has denied doing an act with intent to cause an explosion with intent to cause loss of life or damage property.

His trial will begin on 28 May.

In December Jonathan Taylor, 49, of Southwell Road, Norwich, admitted doing an act with intent to cause an explosion likely to endanger life.

He also admitted possession of a prohibited weapon and was remanded in custody. He will be sentenced at the same as Gregory.
