Bourne: Man In Court Over Explosion

A man charged over an explosion at a Tory party office in Bourne, has appeared in court.

Police were called at around 1.24am on June 10 to reports of an explosion at the Grantham and Stamford Conservative Association office in Burghley Street.


Nobody was hurt in the blast.

The explosion caused minor damage to the office, where Grantham and Stamford MP Nick Boles holds constituency surgeries.

Paul Leversedge was charged with criminal damage with intent to endanger life following the blast at the Conservative Hall in Bourne, Lincolnshire, in June.

The 24-year-old, of Marquess Court, Bourne, pleaded guilty to having an explosive substance under suspicious circumstances.

He has been remanded in custody until sentencing on the 28th November.

Following the incident, Mr Boles, who serves as a planning minister, issued a statement in which he said: "Obviously I deplore this act of violence.''
