    Heavy snow prevented Mr Chambers from flying to Ireland on Friday January 15, so he vented his frustration by posting a comment on the social networking site to amuse his pals.

    “Cr*p! Robin Hood airport is closed,” he wrote. “You’ve got a week and a bit to get your **** together, otherwise I’m blowing the airport sky-high!!”

    A week later, rather unamused police officers arrested him under the Terrorism Act after a tip-off from a member of public.

    Detectives saw his messages as a security threat and questioned him for seven hours. He was kept in a cell for an hour after the interview, then released on bail.

    Furthermore, Mr Chambers has been suspended from work pending an internal investigation and banned from Robin Hood airport for life.
    Bloody hell, you can't even make a joke to your (online) friends anymore on any touchy subject. This country must be a complete laughing stock to outsiders.

    lol it's a shame it's like that. People just don't see the funny side to things anymore. I guess you kinda can't blame them for being cautious though..

    It is pathetic, but he really should have known better. You just don't make jokes like that these days unless you're in private with your friends. What was he thinking posting a public message on the internet joking about blowing up an airport, while in an airport? The authorities are obviously being a bit ridiculous but they've got to be cautious better safe than sorry.

    After the amount of poeple that convert and then become terroists.. is more then the actual ethnicity..
    What is the "actual ethnicity" of a terrorist? Or a Muslim? Hmm.

    Thats sterotyping though.. Just cas his names "Chambers" excludes him from being a terroist :|
    Well let's be honest, if it's not the IRA, it's going to be Islamic extremists isn't it....

    The only reason this situation was taken so seriously is because the law can't be seen as racist.
