Metropolitan Police Officer convicted of neo-Nazi group membership

Correspondent

PC Ben Hannam was found guilty of membership of banned far-right extremist group National Action.

He was also convicted of lying on his application and vetting forms to join the police and having documents detailing knife combat and making explosive devices.

Hannam had been working as a probationary officer for the Metropolitan Police for nearly two years before he was exposed via a leaked database of users of an extreme right-wing online forum.
