A woman was injured when animal rights extremists sent letter bombs to two Oxfordshire science firms yesterday.

The woman was hurt when the device exploded as she opened the morning mail at Orchid Cellmark, a bioscience firm specialising in DNA work, in Blacklands Way at Abingdon Business Park.

And four-and-a-half hours later police were called to LGC Forensics, where a second device had been spotted before it could go off, because staff were on high alert following the first attack.
