A man who posted on Twitter about blowing up a South Yorkshire airport, which he claims were a joke, will have to return to the High Court after two judges were unable to reach a decision in his appeal.

Paul Chambers, 27, was convicted of sending "an electronic communication of a menacing character" and fined after tweeting: "Crap! Robin Hood airport is closed. You've got a week to get your shit together, otherwise I'm blowing the airport sky high!!"
