BREAKING: Andrew Dymock, the neo-Nazi who created two banned terrorist groups, has been convicted of 12 terror offences
Dymock, from Bath, was first exposed by a BBC investigation in 2018.

An Old Bailey jury also found him guilty of three hate crimes.

He's from an academic home
Judge Mark Dennis QC has remanded Dymock in custody ahead of sentencing on 24 June.

It's the first time he's been in custody since he was charged in December 2019
Dymock tried to terrorise and intimidate others - especially gay, Jewish, black and Muslim people - while hiding behind his extremist alias.

Now he's off to jail.

Dymock said the to the jury “Thank you for killing me”
His mother shouted out: “National Action have done this” – in a reference to the neo-Nazi group that Dymock blamed for framing him.

Before he was taken down to the cells, Dymock asked: “Can I say goodbye to my parents?”
So people get what SKD's all about.

The racist and misogynistic propaganda it spread online promoted the rape and murder of women and children.

In private chats, they laughed about young girls they'd encourage to self harm
Dymock criticised Adolf Hitler for “not slaughtering the subhuman British at Dunkirk”, said the age of sexual consent should be 12, and called for police officers to be raped and killed
One member called Groz – later revealed to be a student from Leeds called Michael Szewczuk – mocked a girl he had asked to cut a Swastika into herself, writing she “can’t even carve her own skin properly”.

This is what they're all about
Seven people linked to Dymock or his groups have previously been sentenced for terror offences or hate crimes.

Most were younger than him - and often from far less advantaged backgrounds.
This was the original story that exposed him in December 2018.

He was arrested the next morning.…
The neo-Nazi caught out by his rainbow bedsheets…
Dymock's defence included saying he's gay and can't have been responsible for homophobic propaganda. He wore a rainbow badge to court.

After he was charged, fellow Nazis (these are people who glorify rape, child abuse and murder!) were morally outraged at suggestions he was gay
Here's John Cameron Denton (AKA Rape) telling a private Fascist Forge chat on Wire that he didn't believe it.

Denton was the leader of Atomwaffen Division.

Blitz was Dymock's alias
Dakov, who once wrote a thread on Fascist Forge with the title 'justification of rape', was also morally shocked (I've redacted his abusive term)
It can now be reported that Dymock complained loudly in court - in the absence of the jury, but in front of the press - about the media using these court departure photos.

He said they make him look fat

Andrew Dymock tells a court that flags he personally paid for the manufacture of - and which contained a logo used by the neo-Nazi terror group Sonnenkrieg Division - were really for a pagan airsoft team linked to "proto-European polytheism"
Dymock, charged with multiple terror offences and hate crimes, says that it's a coincidence that someone else had an identical flag - during a photo shoot involving salutes that he took part in - the day after he took delivery of his flags
Prosecutor Jocelyn Ledward asks if he'd mentioned about having the same flags made in China and taking delivery of them only the day before.

Dymock says no.

He says he was "pressured" into posing for the images by a schoolboy and a teenage girl (he was nearly 21 at the time)

Andrew Dymock, on trial for multiple neo-Nazi terror offences, breaks down in the witness box as he says a teenage girl set him up.

"The police should have turned up and tried to protect me", he says.

Many offences were allegedly committed before he actually met the girl
"You guys should have saved me from her", he tells the prosecution.

He told the court yesterday: “I was extremely vulnerable and taken advantage of” and that the girl was “extremely seductive”.

Today he said she was a "femme fatale"
Asked why he thinks he was targeted, Dymock says "because I'm a politics student at university".

Asked why he thinks a neo-Nazi would think he was susceptible, given he claims never to have shared the ideology, he says because the girl said she was into Warhammer

Ben Hannam, recently sacked from the Met Police, is being sentenced this morning at the Old Bailey for neo-Nazi terror offences, fraud, and possessing prohibited images of children.

We are hearing details of the images offence for the first time today (upsetting info below)
When the home of the then police constable was searched by Met detectives last year, his computer was found to contain a folder of “anime cartoons” of children and young people.

At the time, Hannam was working as an officer among north London communities
Prosecutor Dan Pawson-Pounds told the court: “Although most of the files in this folder did not show any sexual acts, there was a series of twelve drawings of the same hand-drawn girl, who appeared to be eight or nine years old, engaged in acts of intercourse”
