Counter-terrorism detectives have charged a man with 12 terror offences as police probe suspected right-wing terrorism online.

Andrew Dymock, of Weymouth Street in Bath, was arrested by officers on Wednesday following an investigation by counter-terror police.

The 22-year-old Somerset man will appear before Westminster Magistrates Court on Thursday.

The charges include five offences of encouraging terrorism, a spokesperson for Counter Terrorism Policing North East said.

He has also been charged with four offences of disseminating terrorist publications, two counts of terrorist fundraising, and one count of possessing material that is of use to a terrorist.

Avon and Somerset Police supported the probe by specialist officers from the counter-terrorism network.
