A businessman convicted today of selling fake bomb detectors has been described as "a conman", according to Avon and Somerset Police.
Speaking outside court, detective superintendent Nigel Rock said:
We have heard evidence from many, many experts, scientists, leaders in their field, who have said this was a fraud. A sham.
James McCormick is a conman. He will continue to be a conman. A man who's made millions of dollars is now convicted.
That device has been used and is still being used on checkpoints. People using that device believe it works. It does not.
