A MAN has been charged in connection with an investigation into a suspected bomb hoax in Grays earlier this week.
We were called to Thurrock Council’s Offices in New Road, Grays on Monday (11 July) at around 3:.0pm following reports of a suspicious package.
The building was evacuated, and the nearby railway station disrupted.
Officers attended and it was established it was a suitcase with nothing suspicious or of concern inside.
Jason Fuller, 52 of Seabrooke Rise, Grays has been charged with possession of a bladed article in a public place and bomb hoax.
He has been remanded and will next appear at Basildon Crown Court on 11 August.
