A NEWQUAY man threatened to blow up a Buckinghamshire train station…from the moon.
Paul Leslie Blatchford, 39, of Mount Wise, pleaded guilty to making the threat to British Transport Police on July 16, in relation to the station at Milton Keynes.
He appeared at Truro Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, and claimed he had made the hoax telephone call as he suffered with mental health problems and wanted to be jailed.
Blatchford told police he had read about a previous incident at Milton Keynes, which he tried to explain to the operator but became angry and threatened to blow up the station.
Gail Hawkley, for the Crown Prosecution Service, said Blatchford had told the operator to “f*** off” before hanging up.
The case has been adjourned until Friday, January 17, while a pre-sentence report is compiled.
Blatchford also admitted breaching a 12-month conditional discharge he received for two previous assaults.
