A teenage neo-Nazi who listed venues in his home city “worth attacking”, including synagogues and mosques, has been convicted of preparing to commit terrorist acts.

The 16-year-old boy drafted his own manifesto entitled A Manual For Practical And Sensible Guerrilla Warfare Against The Kike System In The Durham City Area, Sieg Heil.

Targets in Durham such as schools, pubs, council buildings and post offices were identified in the first chapter, Areas To Attack, to “maximise the impact of the attacks and damage the system the most”.

The youngster, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, also wrote of planning to conduct an arson spree with Molotov cocktails on local synagogues.

Various handwritten documents were seized from his bedroom in March by police who also found a collection of far-right literature, Manchester Crown Court heard.

Analysis of his computer devices and mobile phone uncovered numerous internet searches on firearms, explosives and knives.

On Wednesday a jury found him guilty of preparation of terrorist acts between October 2017 and March this year.
