A MAN has appeared in court via video link charged with making threats to kill after a bottle of acid was found on a train.

Ismail Abudllah Alahmadi handed himself into police as the result of a media appeal by the British Transport Police to trace a man after Middlesbrough Station was closed for several hours on Sunday, January 13, as the bottle of hydrochloric acid was made safe.

At an earlier hearing, the 27-year-old Iranian pleaded not guilty to making threats to kill, being in possession of a weapon designed or adapted for the discharge of a noxious liquid and causing a public nuisance by releasing a noxious liquid on a train when he appeared in Teesside Magistrates' Court yesterday.

Mr Alahmadi, formerly of Diamond Street, Middlesbrough, spoke only to confirm his name.

The defendant was remanded in custody to be committed to Teesside Crown Court on February 28.

Put him in a cell with his bottle which will have a very small hole in it to die a slow lingering death.
