RUMOURS that the man behind a siege in London is from Hemel Hempstead are false.

It was initially believed on social networking site Twitter that the man who entered an office block in Tottenham Court Road with gas canisters strapped to his body is from the town.

But Michael Green, 48, who was charged with possessing a dangerous weapon, false imprisonment, making a bomb hoax and recklessly endangering life, is from Stevenage.
