UK charges 55-year-old man over bomb hoax at Polish consulate

LONDON (Reuters) - British police said prosecutors had charged a 55-year-old man with making a bomb hoax on Thursday at Poland’s consulate in the northern English city of Manchester.

Bogdan Benduski, who gave no fixed address, would appear before magistrates in Manchester at a future date, the city’s police force said in a statement.

Local media reported on Thursday that Poland’s consulate in Manchester was temporarily evacuated after a security threat.
