The bomb was a hoax, but staff believed it was real.
The court heard Nightingale had a 'formidable criminal record.'

Councillors have approved plans for a holiday resort to finance a multi-million coastal defence scheme in Norfolk.
Potters Leisure Resort will pay the £3 million needed to build new rock groynes and add to the sea wall at Hopton near Great Yarmouth to protect the beach from further erosion.
A similar project has been built near the Bourne Leisure Resort north of Potters.
"It's a very unusual move.
For a private company to put £3 million into the local area and help to secure the coastline has got to be fantastic news for all."
A 34-year-old man from Norfolk has been placed on the sex offenders' register after admitting possessing thousands of indecent images of children.
Gavin Hamilton, of Sea View Rise, Hopton, appeared at Norwich Crown Court on Friday.
He was given a three-year community order, with a three-year supervision order, and will also have to follow an internet sex offender programme.
Hamilton had pleaded guilty to five counts of making indecent images of children at a previous hearing.
Police raided his home in April 2014 and seized items including laptops and memory sticks which were found to hold thousands of images and videos of children.
