'Neo-Nazi' accused of hoarding bomb-making materials

A suspected neo-Nazi accused of hoarding bomb-making materials at his Grimsby home has appeared in court to face terrorist charges.

Nathan Worrell, 34, appeared at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court via video link from Blakenhurst Prison, Worcestershire, for a short hearing. Police allegedly found bomb-making manuals, weedkiller and dismantled fireworks at his Cromwell Road flat, which was raided on January 24. Unemployed Worrell is also accused of possessing a collection of far-right wing political literature and propaganda.

He is charged with possessing material for terrorist purposes and information useful for an act of terrorism. He also faces a third charge of waging a racist campaign of harassment against an Asian man and his partner.

District Judge Nicholas Evans adjourned the case until March 13, when the case will be committed to crown court.

Shaven-headed Worrell wore a grey sweatshirt and spoke only to confirm his name. There was no application for bail and no formal plea was entered.
