A 'lonely and bored' man who was 'obsessed' with coronavirus has been jailed for sparking a bomb scare at a vaccine factory in North Wales.

Anthony Collins sent a suspicious package to a factory producing the life-saving Oxford/AstraZeneca jab in January this year, a court heard.

A bomb squad was dispatched to the site in Wrexham, where 120 people were working, and the building had to be evacuated, halting production of the vaccine.
