A member of the far-right BNP who still lives at home with his mum has been jailed for 11 years after building up a cache of weapons in his bedroom.
Former soldier Terrance Gavan manufactured highly dangerous firearms and explosives at his home in Batley, West Yorkshire.
Police discovered 54 improvised explosive devices including nail bombs and a booby-trapped cigarette packet at the address, as well as 12 firearms.
He told detectives that he had "a fascination with things that go bang," the Old Bailey heard.
But Mr Gavan also had a "strong hostility" towards immigrants and planned to target an address he had seen on a television programme that he believed was linked to the July 7 bomb attacks in London.
He told police he was a BNP member and letters to him from the party, as well as a copy of its magazine Hope and Glory, were found at his home.
