Bourne: Man Jailed Following Explosion At MPs Office

A man has been jailed for 15 months, after an explosion at an MPs office in Bourne, north of Peterborough.

Emergency services were called to a blast at the constituency office of Grantham and Stamford Conservative MP Nick Boles on the 10th June this year.

Nobody was hurt, however some damage was caused to the building.

24 year old Paul Leversedge, from Bourne, had already pleaded guilty to causing criminal damage.

He has been jailed for 15 months by Lincoln Crown Court, and ordered to pay a £100 victim surcharge.

Speaking at the time, Mr Boles told Heart: "It was done in the middle of the night, so it clearly wasn't intended to hurt anyone.

I think it is a shame, and a serious offence, and it is right that someone is prosecuted for it.

However it certainly didn't feel like it was anything to be too worried about."
