Britain's youngest terrorist and leader of neo-Nazi cell avoids jail with rehabilitation order

The country's youngest convicted terrorist, who led a neo-Nazi cell from his grandmother's house, has avoided jail.

He was 13 when he obtained instructions for explosives, and a year later had collected a haul of terror material and was sharing far-right ideology in chartrooms.

An Old Bailey judge today gave the teenager - now 16 - a two-year youth rehabilitation order.

The defendant, from southeast Cornwall, had pleaded guilty to 10 counts of possessing terrorist material and two of disseminating terror documents.
