Explosive disposal teams called after a man said he had a bomb in his car.

Homes in Cogenhoe in Northampton were evacuated last night after a man said he had a bomb in his car.

Police went to St Peters Way at around 8:00pm after a man called to say there was an explosive device in a car.

The RAF Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit were then called and carried out a search on the car but nothing was found.
