Two to go on trial over plot to kill MP.
AN ALLEGED member of right-wing terror group National Action has appeared in court, accused of encouraging the machete murder of Labour MP Rosie Cooper.
Christopher Lythgoe, 31, allegedly granted a fellow member of the banned group permission to carry out an attack on July 1. A 22-year-old man from Lancashire, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is charged with intending to commit acts of terrorism.
The charge alleges he bought a machete for the purpose of murdering Cooper between June 5 and July 3. He is also accused of making threats to kill a police officer on July 1. Lythgoe, of Warrington, Cheshire, is charged with encouraging the man to commit murder.
They appeared at the Old Bailey with Garron Helm, 24, and Matthew Hankinson, 23, both of Merseyside, and Andrew Clarke, 33, and Michael Trubini, 35, both of Warrington. The six are accused of being members of NA.
They will be tried later.
