Man Charged After Notts Chemical Find

Police were called to the flat in Central Avenue in Mapperley around 7:30am to carry out a warrant.

A man has been charged with possessing an explosive substance after chemicals were found at a flat.

Nottinghamshire Police said Darren James, who was arrested at a property in Mapperley, Nottingham, early yesterday, would appear before magistrates in the city tomorrow.

A police spokesman said the 26-year-old from Mapperley had been charged with two counts of possessing an explosive substance for an unlawful purpose, possession of a firearm, possession of prohibited ammunition, and two counts of possessing an air weapon contrary to restrictions placed upon him.

James has also been charged with receiving stolen goods after a police inquiry which saw army bomb disposal experts called to a flat in Central Avenue, Mapperley.

A 100-metre cordon was thrown around the property yesterday as a precautionary measure and a nearby primary school was also evacuated.

A 23-year-old woman who was also arrested in connection with the incident has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
