LONDON, Sep 28 (Reuters) A primary school caretaker who sent seven letter bombs in a protest against authority, was given an indeterminate sentence today.

Miles Cooper, 27, from Cambridge, was detained for the public's protection, and will serve a minimum five years, after being found guilty at Oxford Crown Court.

Cooper sent the letters to organisations in England and Wales including the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), three forensic science laboratories, a computer company, an accountancy firm and a residential address during a three-week campaign in January and February this year.

Eight people were injured including a woman who suffered hand injuries.

Cooper had denied the charges.
