    Default Man sparks bomb alert...

    ... by paying parking fine in 10p pieces

    A furious motorist sparked a bomb alert yesterday when he made a protest by paying a £30 parking fine in 10p pieces.

    The man spent £7 having the package holding the coins sent by recorded delivery to the police Central Ticket Office in Ipswich.


    Staff were suspicious that the parcel might contain a bomb and raised the alarm when the Royal Mail delivered it just before 9am.


    Workers were evacuated from the office and police closed the road for more than an hour until a bomb disposal team arrived from Colchester, Essex. The package was found to be harmless when X-rayed by the Army experts and found to contain only coins.



    A spokeswoman for the ticket office said: "The package was sent by someone who obviously wanted to do it as a protest - but they ended up causing unnecessary anxiety."
    The spokeswoman said officials were now deciding whether to accept the payment.


    She added that officials were also deciding whether to take action against the sender for wasting police time.

    How can they decide if they should accept the payment? It's money ffs.

    The fact they're even considering taking action for wasting time just goes to show the fucking lunatics we have in places of power in this country.
