Police and firefighters were called to Ribblesdale Court at around 11am on Saturday because of concerns about the behaviour and safety of a man in a second-floor flat.So what did they do? Well, disrupted the lives of everyone else, of course!
Eight flats were evacuated in Chilwell during a seven-hour stand-off between police and a resident.Yup. Eight families were shoved out of their homes at 11:00am while the police 'negotiated'.
And why? Did the man have a bomb? A container of deadly virus?
Matthew Owen Wilkinson, 36, of Ribblesdale Court, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates' court today in connection with the incident. He is charged with one count of criminal damage and another of making threats to commit criminal damage with intent to endanger life. He was remanded in custody and will appear at Nottingham Crown Court on January 4.Guess not...
