A Ribble Valley man who allegedly threatened to set off a bomb unless a large sum of cash was handed over was arrested and bailed until next month.

Police said an anonymous hand-delivered letter was taken to Barclays Bank in King Street, Whalley, on Thursday last week carrying the demands.

Officers discovered the note was a hoax and a Billington man, believed to be in his 60s, was arrested on suspicion of blackmail.
