Six people charged for belonging to National Action

Five men and one woman have been charged with belonging to the far-right terror group National Action.

The arrests took place on 3 January and were pre-planned and intelligence-led, the West Midlands Police revealed.

They said the six were charged with being ‘concerned in the commission, preparation and instigation of acts of terrorism’.

National Action is a far-right terror group which has been banned in Britain after Home Secretary Amber Rudd said it was promoting violence and acts of terrorism.

A string of counter-terrorism units were involved in the operation, including those from the West Midlands, north-west, south-east and east of England.
