Benjamin Hannam remained in ‘National Action’ after it was outlawed, lied on his police application and was found in possession of bomb-making instructions – and admitting possessing an indecent image of a child
Metropolitan Police officer Benjamin Hannam has been found guilty of membership of banned far-right extremist group ‘National Action’ – and admitted possession of an indecent image of a child.
Hannam, 22 years old and a probationary officer for two years by the time he was uncovered, was also found to have documents on knife fighting and bomb-making. He had lied about his membership on his police application forms.
