0 1

A man has been charged with possession of explosives after two suspected bombs were found in an empty north-west London flat.


Richard Parry, 49, was arrested after the two suspicious devices were found at an address in Craven Park, Harlesden, on November 21 last year.

He was charged with two counts of possession of an explosive substance for unlawful purposes contrary to the Explosive Substances Act on Wednesday.

Parry was also charged with one count of possession of a class A drug and one count of possession of a class B drug.

He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on May 22.

Police had said they were called to an unoccupied property that was being refurbished and found the two suspected improvised explosive devices.

The block of flats was evacuated and roads were closed while specialist officers conducted further searches to ensure the area was safe.

Parry has been granted bail ahead of his court appearance.
