A man with an “obsessive” COVID-19 interest has been jailed after sparking a bomb scare at a vaccine factory.
Anthony Collins, from Kent, halted manufacturing of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine at a factory in Wrexham, Wales, after sending a suspicious package that had to be detonated by bomb disposal experts.
The Army’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit was dispatched to the Wockhardt plant on 27 January, where a total of 120 people had to be evacuated.
Officers managed to identify Collins after recovering various pieces of paper from the suspicious package sent to the COVID vaccine factory, including several pages from a science manual, a letter addressed to him, and a Tesco receipt https://t.co/Xh0UcrnQms
