Six alleged members of the neo-Nazi terrorist group National Action have been arrested on suspicion of terror offences.

Five men and a woman were detained in coordinated dawn raids across the Midlands are being held for questioning.

Five specialist counter-terror units were involved in the raids and investigators are continuing to search the suspects’ homes. …

Those detained are a 26-year-old man from Cambridge, a 21-year-old man from Banbury, a 28-year-old man from Wolverhampton, a 26-year-old man from Leicester, a 24-year-old man from Stockport and a 37-year-old woman also from Banbury. …

The operation came as three other alleged National Action members, including two British soldiers, were due to appear at Birmingham Crown Court in an unrelated terror case.

In a separate case, a man from Lancashire will go on trial later this year accused of buying a machete with the intention of murdering Labour MP Rosie Cooper.

The man and five others accused of involvement in the terror plot are all alleged members of National Action.

It became the first far-right group to be banned in the UK last December, causing its members to split into renamed regional factions in an attempt to evade the crackdown. …

Founded in 2013, National Action promotes the idea that Britain will inevitably see a violent race war and has been linked to violent plots, while its members ran what activists called a “terror training camp” at its former base in Warrington.

It praised the murderer of Labour MP Jo Cox, who was killed by a far-right extremist … in 2016 and called for “white jihad” against perceived enemies including Jewish people and the LGBT community.

The group was known for using the phrases “Hitler was right” and “Britain is ours, the rest must go” at marches, and online propaganda included images showing members performing Nazi salutes inside a German concentration camp.

Sabby Dhalu, the joint secretary of Unite Against Fascism (UAF), said “greater prominence” must be given to combating far-right terrorism.

She accused the Government and media of focusing disproportionately on Islamist extremism, adding: “The murder of Jo Cox and the outrage in Finsbury Park show that this is not a minor threat.”

Fellow joint secretary Weyman Bennett said hate crime attacks on Muslims and mosques also demonstrated the threat.

“After being defeated at the ballot box and on the streets, the far-right is increasingly turning to violence and terrorism”, he added.

“National Action are despicable Nazis who use Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, homophobia and threats of violence to intimidate all who oppose their sick ideology. They are a tiny part of the growing threat of far-right terrorism which must be prioritised and defeated.”
