A man has been charged in connection with an investigation into a suspected bomb hoax in Grays earlier this week.

Police were called to Thurrock Council’s Offices in New Road, Grays on Monday July 11 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 August 11.
