A man from March is among six people arrested across the country for being members of an illegal far right-wing activist group.
Nathan Pryke, of Dartford Road, will appear at Westminster Magistrates Court today in London for being concerned in the commission, preparation and instigation of acts of terrorism under Section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000.
He is under suspicion of being a member of a proscribed organisation (National Action) contrary to section 11 of the Terrorism Act.
Proscribed means that an organisation is illegal.
