A teenager accused of alleged far-right terror offences has appeared in court.

George Fowle appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Monday accused of possessing material likely to be useful to someone planning an attack.

Wearing a light blue suit and tie, the 19-year-old from Snodland, Kent, spoke only to confirm his personal details. No pleas were indicated during the short hearing.

Fowle was bailed to appear before the Old Bailey on Friday, February 7 by chief magistrate Emma Arbuthnot.

He is charged with two counts of possessing a recording containing information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism, contrary to section 58 of the Terrorism Act (2000).

Fowle was arrested in June at London Heathrow airport after a stop by counter-terror police.
