11 years for BNP terrorist

News on the BNP terrorist:

A man who admitted making nail and ball bearing bombs at his West Yorkshire home has been jailed for 11 years.

Terrence Robert Gavan also pleaded guilty to six counts of having or collecting documents useful in terrorism.

The 38-year-old from Batley was arrested in a raid by police at his home in May 2009, the Old Bailey heard.

The arsenal of weapons and explosives included home-made shotguns, pen guns and pistols.

Sentencing Gavan, Mr Justice Calvert-Smith said his case was “unique” because of his long and persistent manufacture of guns and explosives.

Gavan pleaded guilty to a total of 22 charges at Woolwich Crown Court last November.
