Police have quizzed a man over an alleged plot to bomb the London Olympics.
The officers were sent to Blackpool, earlier this week following the arrest of a 42 -year -old at a flat.
The man is currently being held in custody and will appear before magistrates in the town on Friday.
He is Javed Aktar of Havelock Street, Blackpool.
Aktar has been charged with leading another person into believing that he had explosives, namely Semtex, in Blackpool with intent to cause an explosion.
He is alleged to have told a third party that he had a bomb in his car and was preparing to drive to the Olympics in London and ignite it.
Police were alerted when the witness managed to make a 999 call on his mobile phone.
Aktar is further charged with racially aggravated threatening behaviour towards a police sergeant.
At a court hearing earlier this week Aktar was remanded in custody.
