Scotland Yard says the warning is “non-specific” in time and location – there have been two other security alerts in central London today.

A BOMB THREAT received by police in the south of France has resulted in the evacuation of thousands of Catholic pilgrims from Lourdes.

About 30,000 Catholic worshippers were in the town to celebrate the annual Feast of the Assumption.

Lourdes has been the site of Roman Catholic pilgrimages since a young local girl, Bernadette Soubirous, reported visions of the Virgin Mary in 1858. Around six million people visit the area every year, with many seeking cures for illnesses.

Lourdes is a popular pilgrimage site for Irish Catholics.

Police said that a call received today threatened that four bombs would explode in Lourdes at 3pm. Bomb disposal experts are at the scene, but there have been no reports of explosions.

A MAN WHO sent hoax bomb threat emails to Heathrow Airport has been jailed for four years. Adam Busby, 61, was found guilty of two counts of sending hoax messages claiming bombs were on two transAtlantic flights in 2006.

The emails were sent from a library in the North Strand, Dublin.

He denied the offences, but was convicted last month. Judge Desmond Hogan suspended the last two years of his sentence.

Busby, originally from Scotland but with an address at Santry Lodge in Ballymun, moved to Ireland in 1980 after organising several minor terror attacks in Scotland.

He allegedly founded the Scottish National Liberation Army (SNLA) in 1979, which sent dozens of letter bombs to its political targets in the 1980s. The group’s targets included Prince Charles, Margaret Thatcher and Cherie Blair, but no one was injured.

The SNLA was outlawed in Ireland in 2005.

He was convicted of similar hoaxes 13 years ago after making threatening phone calls to the press.
