'Racist, homophobic' National Action group to be banned under Terrorism Act

PA

A neo-Nazi movement is to become the first extreme right-wing group banned as a terrorist organisation, the Government has announced.

An order laid in Parliament on Monday to proscribe National Action under the Terrorism Act 2000 is due to come into effect on Friday morning.

It will mean that being a member of, or inviting support for, the group becomes a criminal offence.
