A man has admitted making a bomb hoax at a Tesco supermarket in Great Yarmouth last year.
Stewart Nightingale, of North Quay in Great Yarmouth, pleaded guilty to one count of blackmail and one count of making a bomb hoax by placing an article with intent, at Norwich Crown Court yesterday.
The bomb hoax was made at the Tesco store in Pasteur Road on Friday, March 6 last year.
Officers were called to the Tesco store in Pasteur Road just after 4pm following reports there was a suspicious package inside.
A 100 metre cordon went up around the store while staff and shoppers were evacuated.
The bomb disposal unit was called and disposed of an item, but police enquiries later established it was a hoax call.
Nightingale will be sentenced at Norwich Crown Court in March.
