POLICE have charged a woman who is alleged to have lied about a person threatening to commit suicide.

An emergency response was sparked on Saturday night when the 52-year-old woman allegedly called the police informing them that someone was threatening to jump from the top of the Civic Centre building in Bricket Road, St Albans.

She was tracked down and arrested by police who later charged her with using a public system to send false messages. She will appear before magistrates next month.
