Caretaker in letter bombs trial
A primary school caretaker is facing trial charged with sending letter bombs to a string of addresses across Britain.
Miles Cooper, 27, from Cherry Hinton, Cambridge, denies eight counts of causing harm to people with explosives, two counts of intending to cause harm and one count of making an explosive substance.
It is alleged he sent a series of letter bombs in January and February this year, injuring eight people.
The charges relate to devices received by staff at Swansea's DVLA, forensic laboratories in Birmingham and Oxfordshire, a firm in Wokingham and the offices of Capita, which administers the congestion charge, in London.
He is also charged with sending a letter bomb to a residential address in Folkestone, Kent.
