A Dartford man is accused of making a bomb hoax by claiming he had an explosive device at his home address.

Mr Hendrie was subsequently charged with communicating false information about a bomb, which is an offence under the Criminal Law Act 1977.

He has also been charged with five counts of assaults against police officers and one count of criminal damage to a custody cell.

Mr Hendrie was remanded in custody to appear before Medway magistrates on Monday.
