Bomb in the mail?

On 29th June 1994, the Sheffield Star newspaper (UK) carried a report of a full-scale bomb alert in the city.

A housewife had called the police after a parcel delivered to her home had started to buzz. The army bomb disposal team were called from a nearby base, and an expert, protected by blast-proof clothing, prepared to disarm the device.

When the package was opened, a mail-order vibrator, whose batteries had activated of their own accord, was revealed in all its glory.

According to the Star, the embarrassed woman has not been named by the police
