Britain’s youngest convicted terrorist who masterminded a notorious neo-Nazi cell from his grandmother’s cottage, walked free from court today reports MailOnline.

The teenager, who was 13 at the time of the first offence, and 15 at the time of the last one, lives with his grandmother in rural Cornwall. 

He became the leader of the UK branch of Feuerkrieg Division (FKD) in 2019 and when police raided his grandmother’s home they found a swastika flag and the extremist codes ’14’ and 88′ – standing for ‘Heil Hitler’ painted across the garden shed.

He was also found with a manual containing bomb-making instructions, ingredients for napalm, and instructions on how to make Molotov cocktails, build an AK47 assault rifle, and engage in knife combat.

When he was arrested, the teenager told officers he had made homophobic, racist and anti-Semitic posts online to ‘look cool.’ 
He pleaded guilty to 12 offences – two of dissemination of terrorist documents and 10 of possession of terrorist material.

The defendant was handed a 24-month youth rehabilitation order by Judge Mark Dennis QC at the Old Bailey today.
The judge told the boy he had ‘entered an online world of wicked prejudice’ and any reoffending would lead to a ‘spiral of ever-lengthening terms of incarceration’ to protect the public. 

Throughout the case, the defendant was described as ‘vulnerable’ with an ‘abnormal childhood’.

However, the judge took account of his guilty plea, expression of remorse and that he was ‘susceptible to the influence others’.

Judge Dennis ruled out custody, saying it would undo the work that is already under way to rehabilitate the youth. I
