A Stockport neo-Nazi supporter has been jailed for five years and 10 months after admitting being a member of a banned far-right group.

IT worker and former Army reservist Joel Wilmore was a major member of the extreme right-wing organisation National Action.

Birmingham Crown Court had earlier heard the 24-year-old, of Bramhall Moor Lane, Hazel Grove , Stockport , sent abusive messages about Muslims and Jews during a conversation on the encrypted messaging service Telegram in February 2017.

Several other members of National Action, which was banned in 2016, were also jailed.
