Police have released photographs documenting what officers found when they searched the bedroom of 20-year-old far-right-obsessed bomb-builder Ryan McGee.
The serving British soldier went to jail for two years today after he pleaded guilty to building a bomb and possessing literature useful to a terrorist.
When officers searched the soldier's home in Eccles, Greater Manchester, they found a nailbomb in a jar stuffed with 181 metal screws.
A collection of weapons was also discovered in the room. Amongst them were a hand-axe, two pistols, a knife, knuckle-dusters, and a crow-bar.

Pressure sensors that could be used for booby traps were also discovered by police, as well as flags of the far-right English Defence League group.
A sketchbook contained a drawing of a soldier, by McGee, with an English flag for a face standing in front of a terrace of houses
A sign reading "Freedom Street" was visible in the background.
The soldier, who was arrested whilst serving in Germany, admitted to possessing a document containing information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism, and to a second charge of making an explosive device.
Police discovered the device while they searched a home in Eccles, Greater Manchester, in connection with an unrelated investigation in November last year. Prosecutors said the bomb was "viable".Reuse content
