Durham (UK), May 15 (ANI): A white supremacist, who dismissed other extreme groups as weak, has been jailed for ten years.

He is the first Briton to be convicted for producing a chemical weapon.

Ian Davison, 42, manufactured enough ricin to kill nine people and kept it in a jar in his kitchen for two years.

According to The Scotsman, he was jailed along with his teenager son Nicky, who was a fellow member of a group known as "the Aryan Strike Force".

Nicky was sentenced to two years in a young offenders' institution.

Ian Davison, a resident of Burnopfield in Durham County, previously admitted producing a chemical weapon, preparing acts of terrorism, three counts of possessing material useful to commit acts of terror and one count of possessing a prohibited weapon.

His 19-year-old son was convicted of three counts of possessing material useful for acts of terror following a trial a fortnight ago.

The charges related to downloading copies of the Anarchist's Cookbook and The Poor Man's James Bond on two computers. (ANI)
