A fourteen-year-old from Darlington has pleaded guilty to terror charges, making him the youngest person to be convicted on terror offences.
The schoolboy admitted three counts of possessing information useful to a terrorist, specifically manuals for making explosives, last week at Westminster Magistrates’ Court. He was also reportedly active on racist online forums.
The boy, who cannot be named, was arrested last July when he was thirteen in an investigation into extreme right-wing terrorism. He was released on bail until 1st April when he will be sentenced at Newton Aycliffe Youth Court.
Campaign Against Antisemitism has been monitoring and acting against the threat from the far-right for years and continues to support the authorities following suit.
