Did County Durham Man Make Napalm To Attack Egg-Tossing Neighbours?
WHEN yobs tossed eggs at Nicholas Smith’s house in Horden, County Durham, last May, he became agitated.
He writes on Facebook:
“Now I’m gonna die tonight. War has been declared [by neighbours]. Eggs thrown at me. To hell with the cops. I will burn them. I would rather be with Melanie.”
Melanie is 53-year-old Mr Smith’s daughter who died.
At Teeside Crown Court Police Constable Gary Fildes says he saw Mr Smith mixing household items, including lighter fuel, in a saucepan, “making napalm”. He asked Mr Smith what he was up to:
“What does it f*****g look like? I am making a bomb.”
He was arrested. Smith was charged under the Explosive Substances Act. Police seize a computer, a saucepan, a cheese grater and soap.
In court, forensic scientist Lorna Phillip, said the mixture “could have been described as napalm”
Mr Smith denies all charges. The trial continues.
