A director of a company which sold allegedly ineffective bomb detectors to 20 countries has had his police bail extended for the fourth time.

Jim McCormick, 54, of Wincanton-based ATSC Ltd, was arrested in January last year on suspicion of fraud by misrepresentation.

A BBC investigation alleged that millions of pounds worth of bomb detectors sold to Iraq did not work.

He has now been rebailed until July while investigations continue.
