The group is a far-right neo-Nazi group based in the UK.

Founded in 2013, it was proscribed as a terrorist group by the UK government in December 2016 after it was linked to violent attacks and plots, including the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox.

The group is secretive and has rules to prevent members from talking openly about it.

National Action is described as a “National Socialist youth organisation” and says its movement is aimed at the “broken right-wing”.

Those charged with being members are:

• Nathan Pryke, 26, of Dartford Road, March.

• Adam Thomas, 21, of Waltham Gardens, Banbury, Oxfordshire.

• Claudia Patatas, 38, of Waltham Gardens, Banbury, Oxfordshire.

• Darren Fletcher, 28, of Kitchen Lane, Wednesfield, Wolverhampton.

• Daniel Bogunovic, 26, of Crown Hills Rise, Leicester.

• Joel Wilmore, 24, of Bramhall Moor Lane, Stockport.

Thomas is also charged with possessing information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism contrary to s.58 of Terrorism Act 2000.

Fletcher is also charged with five counts of breaching an anti-social behaviour order.

At today’s court appearance Bogunvic was additionally charged with a separate offence of inciting racial hatred which relates to National Action branded stickers being found displayed in the grounds of the Aston University complex in July 2016.

The arrests took place on Wednesday 3 January by officers from West Midlands Police Counter Terrorism Unit in conjunction with North West CTU, CT Policing South East, Eastern CTIU and EMSOU (previously EM CTIU).

The arrests were pre-planned and intelligence-led and police say there was no threat to the public’s safety.
