Cops investigating an alleged plot to kill the head of the BNP are taking no further action against a former member accused of planning to kill him.
Mark Collett, 30, from Rothley, Leicestershire, was arrested by Humberside police in April over alleged threats against Nick Griffin. He was sacked as the BNP’s spin doctor the same month for trying to launch what the far-right party described as a “palace coup” against Mr Griffin.
Mr Collett said: “I’m elated, I’m extremely happy, as is my family. I’m very happy and I’m now trying to get on with my life. I’m not connected with the BNP any more, although I’ve still got friends who are. As far as I’m concerned, justice was done.”
