White supremacist admits producing ricin for terrorism
A white supremacist today admitted producing deadly ricin while preparing for acts of terrorism.
Ian Davison's home in Myrtle Grove, Burnopfield, County Durham, was raided by anti-terror officers who found the killer substance in a jam jar in his kitchen.
At Newcastle Crown Court he admitted producing a chemical weapon - ricin - and preparing for acts of terrorism.
He also admitted three charges of possessing a record containing information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing acts of terrorism.
The charge related to copies of three texts including The Anarchist's Handbook, which detailed instructions on making explosives.
Davison, who wore a pale blue, short-sleeved shirt and was flanked by four prison officers, also admitted possession of a prohibited weapon which related to a spray canister found during the raid on his home.
He will be sentenced after the trial of his son Nicky Davison, 19, who denies two charges of possessing material containing information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing acts of terrorism.
The case will be heard on April 12.
The father, a truck driver and ex-DJ, was remanded in custody and Judge John Milford warned him: "Doubtless you have been told only custody can follow."
Nicky Davison was granted bail until his trial.
