A man has been charged after an alleged bomb was sent to a home in Cricklewood.

Police were called shortly after 9.10am on September 10, after a resident received a “suspicious package,” which officers made safe.

The Met police teamed up with armed officers from Cambridge Constabulary to arrest a man in Cambridge on Saturday (September 12) at 9.15am.

Ovidijus Margelis, 26, of Cambridge was charged with seven offences yesterday (September 13).
