Two teenagers have been charged with terrorism offences by police thought to be investigating a neo-Nazi group that threatened Prince Harry.

An 18-year-old man from Portsmouth faces five charges of encouraging terrorism and three of disseminating terrorist publications.

A 17-year-old boy from London also faces five charges of encouraging terrorism.

The pair were arrested on Thursday.

Counter Terrorism Policing North East said the pre-planned operation was part of an ongoing investigation into extreme right-wing activity.

It is understood a neo-Nazi group named the Sonnenkrieg Division is included in the investigation.

The group is reported to have posted a propaganda image online showing Prince Harry with a pistol pointed at his head and the words “see ya later race traitor”.

The Sonnenkrieg Division also said to have shared swastika-branded images glorifying the Norwegian far-right terrorist Anders Breivik.

A 21-year-old man from Bath, who was also arrested in the operation, has been released on bail pending further enquiries.
