A Norwich teenager accused of making a hoax bomb threat at a city shopping centre will appear in court later this month.

Luke Brown, 18, of Arnold Miller Road, faces one count of communicating false information in relation to a bomb hoax yesterday (Thursday).

Brown is accused of falsely reporting a bomb was present in the food court of Castle Mall.

Enquiries led officers to arrest Brown who was questioned at Wymondham Police Investigation Centre and later charged.

He was released on bail to appear before Norwich Magistrates Court on Thursday, March 20.
