A FOI request has revealed the number of homemade bombs found in Scotland grew by four, in a year.
I liked the pun in their headline so much I had to steal it.
The Courrier report:
The number of homemade bombs dealt with by disposal experts in Scotland almost quadrupled in a year, The Courier can reveal.
A staggering 68 improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and 451 potentially dangerous “conventional” munitions have been discovered across the country since 2010.
Figures uncovered by a Freedom of Information investigation show the 13 IEDs reported and disposed of in 2010 rocketed to 40 in 2011.
