A Lakenheath man who stood as a candidate for the BNP has been charged with six offences inrelation to possession of firearms and explosives and will appear in court tomorrow.
Charges against David Lucas, 49, of South Road, Lakenheath, include possession of explosives under suspicious circumstances, possession of a prohibited weapon and possession of prohibited ammunition.
The charges were brought on Thursday following execution of warrants in the Lakenheath and Hockwold areas on April 23. Police said the delay between the original arrest and the charges being brought was because only the Attorney General can authorise charges of this nature.
Mr Lucas was a candidate for the BNP in European elections held earlier this year.
