Sheffield bomb threat taxi driver jailed

A SHEFFIELD taxi driver who sent an email to the English Defence League, saying its march in Bristol was going to be bombed, has been jailed for two years.

Sakander Mahmood, aged 26, of Firth Park, Sheffield, admitted sending the group a hoax message through its website.

But he told Sheffield Crown Court he never meant it to be taken seriously as a threat.

The father-of-five who was a self employed taxi driver in Sheffield denied communicating a hoax bomb threat with intent.

But he was found guilty by the jury at his second trial.

The court heard Mr Mahmood had sent a message which read: “14th July in Bristol, You are getting bombed.”
