A Fife pensioner who threatened to kill Theresa May and caused a bomb hoax at Harrods has been locked up.
Isabella Jackson, 72, admitted a series of offences which included the threat to the Prime Minister while she was still Home Secretary and sending white powder to Levenmouth Police Station.
She was remanded in custody following a hearing at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court on Tuesday and will be sentenced later this month.
The wheelchair-bound convict has previously served time in prison for sending email threats to the US Embassy in London claiming there was a bomb on a plane and that former US president Barack Obama was to be killed.
Jackson, of Buckhaven, admitted threatening to kill Mrs May on November 24, 2014, from her home address in Braehead Gardens, the Palace of Westminster or elsewhere.
She also admitted emailing police while she was on bail on January 4, this year, claiming there was a bomb in the Harrods department store in London.
Between then and January 17 she sent a white powder with a card marked with the word ‘death’ to the Levenmouth criminal investigation department at the police station in Methil.
Jackson admitted a fourth charge of sending a message to Fife Council on September 10, 2015, falsely claiming Susan Johnston was dead.
Pleas of not guilty to four other charges were accepted.
Sentence was deferred on Jackson for preparation of a criminal justice and social work enquiry report until May 25, when there will also be a serious crime prevention order hearing.
