FOUR people have been charged with right-wing terrorism offences; police have said.
Daniel Wright, 29, Liam Hall, 30, and Stacey Salmon, 28, all of Keighley, West Yorkshire, are facing multiple charges including possession of articles connected to acts of terrorism and possession of a firearm.
Samuel Whibley, 28, of Derwen Deg, Menai Bridge, on Anglesey, north Wales, is facing six counts of encouraging terrorism and two of disseminating terrorist publications.
All four will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Friday.
Counter Terrorism Policing North East said three of the four people charged face an allegation that “they possessed an article, namely components of a 3D printed firearm, in circumstances which give rise to a reasonable suspicion that their possession was for a purpose connected with the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism”.
A 16-year-old boy arrested in Swindon, Wiltshire, has been released from custody without charge.
Detective Chief Superintendent Martin Snowden, head of Counter Terrorism Policing North East, said: “We understand these arrests and police activity have caused considerable concern within our communities, in particular the impact of speculation around them and the ongoing inquiries across social media.
