Three men suspected of ‘extreme right-wing activity’ charged with preparing terror act

Three men have been charged with preparing an act of terrorism after an investigation into suspected “extreme right-wing activity”, police have said.

Counter Terrorism Policing North East (CTPNE) said Brogan Stewart, 24, from Leeds, West Yorkshire, Marco Pitzettu, 24, from Derby, Derbyshire, and Christopher Ringrose, 33, from Cannock, Staffordshire, have each been charged with engaging in the preparation of an act of terrorism under Section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006.

They will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

The three men were arrested on 20 February as part of a “pre-planned, intelligence-led operation”, CTPNE said.

A fourth man, 46, from Leicester, was also arrested on 20 February but has been released without charge.
