Bomber's rates rage

A LABOUR council leader's house was petrol-bombed after a 62 per cent rates rise was announced.

And Neil Gerrard, leader of Waltham Forest Council in London, claims he has also received death threats;

The bomb was thrown at Mr Gerrard's house on Friday night while he was out on council business.

"Whoever did this must be sick," he said. "They couldn't have known the house was empty."
