UK radio pirate jailed for sparking terrorist alert

A pirate radio broadcaster in Kent, UK, whose equipment sparked a major terrorist alert has been jailed. James Cooper, 28, from Walderslade, strapped a laptop computer and an aerial to the top of a 50-foot water tower at Blue Bell Hill to pump drum n bass to his audience. But the crudely-assembled broadcast gear, placed on private property behind a six-foot chain-link fence in Common Road, was mistaken for a bomb by a suspicious South East Water employee. He called police, who brought in the bomb squad.

A frantic five-hour disposal operation, in which two controlled explosions were carried out, followed. Mr Cooper was sentenced to 150 days in jail after a hearing at Medway Magistrates Court last Tuesday.
