A Metropolitan police officer has been found guilty of belonging to a banned neo-Nazi terror group and possessing extremist material.

The 22-year-old is the first serving British police officer to be convicted of a terror offence.

Benjamin Hannam was a member of the far right extremist group, National Action, which was banned in 2016.

He lied about his past, when applying to join the force.
