Five men and a woman have been charged with membership of a banned far-right organisation. Nathan Pryke, Adam Thomas, Claudia Patatas, Darren Fletcher, Daniel Bogunovic and Joel Wilmore were arrested in a series of pre-planned raids across the country on January 3. The six suspects, aged 21 to 28, are believed to be members of National Action the first Neo Nazi group placed on the Governments list of proscribed organisations. They have been charged with offences breaching the Terrorism Act 2000 and will appear at Westminster Magistrates Court later today (January 9). Thomas was also charged with possessing information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism, and Fletcher was charged with five counts of breaching an anti-social behaviour order. A number of counter-terror units were involved in the arrests, including West Midlands Police Counter Terrorism Unit, CT Policing South East, North West CTU and Eastern CTIU. A West Midlands Police spokesperson said: The arrests were pre-planned and intelligence-led; there was no threat to the publics safety. Searches at a number of addresses have been completed.
