Once Again, Folks, Role Playing And Home Science Kits Can Lead To Trouble In The Real World

Especially when you combine the vortex of suck that is British Nanny Statism and a shitload of fake weapons.

Items found in a flat which police initially suspected could be homemade explosive devices turned out to be harmless "science fiction-style" equipment, officers said.

About 100 homes had to be evacuated after police arrested a man and called bomb disposal officers following a siege at the property in Harlow, Essex.

Officers were called to the third floor flat early yesterday after reports that a man had been spotted with a longbow.

Armed officers and negotiators arrived and a 36-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon.

A search of his home revealed a number of "unexplained" items, police said.

Bomb disposal experts were called in and homes within a 100 yard cordon set up by police were evacuated.
