A Royal Navy bomb disposal team has detonated explosives seized from a house in Devon.

They were part of a haul including 17 improvised explosive devices and 9kg of ammonium nitrate with fuel oil removed from Stephen Bracher's home in Bishops Tawton in Devon in January.

Mr Bracher was jailed for 40 months at Exeter Crown Court after admitting three counts of having explosive substances.

Once police discovered Mr Bracher's home contained chemicals, homemade IEDs and weapons, the Royal Navy’s Explosive Ordnance Department (EOD) was called.

The house was cordoned off and EOD spent two to three days at the property making all of the items safe.
