Police found what they described at the time as a ‘crude improvised explosive device' at a house on Abbey Lane to which they were called on Saturday, March 3 last year.

Dorain was one of three people arrested at the time, but police said no further action had been taken against the other man and a woman, who they said had been eliminated from their enquiries.

The full charge against Dorain is making an explosive substance, namely improvised explosive device, under circumstances as to give rise to a reasonable suspicion that you were not making it for a lawful object.

He was charged under section 4 (1) of the Explosive Substances Act 1883.
