A Lancashire joiner has pleaded not guilty to 12 charges relating to terrorism and explosives.

Justin Cartwright appeared at Preston Crown Court to deny the charges following his arrest by counter-terrorism police last autumn.

Mr Cartwright, 38, from Penwortham, denies seven counts of making explosives and one count of possessing explosives.

He also denies four counts of owning information useful to terrorism.

The information included The White Resistance Manual, The Anarchist Cookbook and The Mujahideen Handbook, the court was told.
