Concern at developing crofty bomb craze

Police in various parts of the country have arrested and fined a number of people for making so-called ‘crofty bombs’. These are based on mixing warm water and drain cleaner in a plastic bottle. Three men were arrested in Tilburg for throwing a bomb at a woman riding her bike. In Hengelo, a 13-year-old boy was fined for setting one off in a skate park.
