Former police support officer, 35-year-old, Zoe Watts, has been jailed for 27 months after admitting making an improvised explosive device (IED), three counts of possession of a prohibited weapon and two counts of inappropriately importing goods, namely butterfly knives. When police officers searched her home in Lincoln, Lincolnshire in October last year, they recovered a stun gun, knives, an illegal electric fly swatter, dangerous substances and an IED made from a modified shotgun cartridge. Nearby homes were evacuated as a bomb disposal team safely disposed of the items. The court heard that Watts ran a YouTube channel dedicated to “survivalist purposes” and experimented with setting fire to things and causing explosions. The judge accepted that she “had no malicious intent to cause deliberate harm to anybody or to damage property”.
