Grimsby extremist Nathan Worrell has been sent back to prison for using a phone


A right-wing extremist imprisoned for terrorist crimes and inciting racial hatred has been returned to prison after violating rules regarding the use of his mobile phone.

Nathan Worrell (50 years old) was jailed on charges of violating anti-terrorism conditions applied after his conviction.

Worrell, from Grimsby, was jailed in 2019 for posting neo-Nazi material about his hometown of Hull.

He was sentenced to six years in prison at Sheffield Crown Court on Friday.

Worrell was also ordered to have an extended license for one year upon his release.

In addition to being found guilty of violating notification requirements, he also admitted possessing racially inflammatory material.

“Strict surveillance”

Police said Worrell was jailed for seven years and three months in 2008 for possession of materials for terrorist purposes and racial harassment.

He was also sentenced to two years and six months in prison for his crimes committed in 2019.

Det Ch Supt Jim Dunkerley, head of North East Counter Terrorism Policing, said: “Those subject to notification requirements are strictly monitored.

“Violations of any kind are taken seriously and will be prosecuted.

“Worrell knew the risks of failing to comply with his notification requirements.

“Despite this, he believed he could withhold information from our officers.

“His attempt to do so was quickly identified and ultimately led to his return to prison.”
