A 42-YEAR-old man was remanded in custody yesterday when he appeared in court accused of making an improvised explosive device out of canisters and screws which was left on the steps of a council office.
James Wilson made a brief appearance at Doncaster Magistrates’ Court where he faced a single charge in connection with an incident last week.
An explosive device was discovered outside Concorde House, which is just outside Doncaster town centre, in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
The building, which is used by a number of departments of Doncaster Council, was sealed off as Army bomb disposal experts made it safe.
Concorde House was empty at the time.
Wilson, of Exchange Street, Doncaster, is charged with making an improvised explosive device from canisters, accelerant and screws with intent to endanger life.
There was no application for bail and the court ruled that the case should be transferred to the Crown Court.
Wilson was remanded in custody to appear at Doncaster Crown Court on May 6.
