Bank raid 'bomb' a hoax, say police

The high street bank bomb alert which sparked a three hour stand-off with armed police was a hoax, tests showed last night.

A device strapped to the 23-year-old suspect's leg when he walked into a Co-operative bank in Watford yesterday was "not viable", police said.

Police attended the siege before he gave himself up to officers.
