Terror case man denies bomb plot
An East Yorkshire man accused of making nail bombs and having bomb-making manuals has denied terrorism charges.

Martyn Gilleard, 31, of Pool Court, Goole, pleaded not guilty at Leeds Crown Court to engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts.

He also denies possessing articles for terrorist purposes and collecting information for terrorist purposes.

Gilleard admitted having 34 cartridges of ammunition without a certificate. He will go on trial in Leeds on 16 June.

Prosecutors allege Gilleard, who appeared by video link from Belmarsh prison in south east London, had researched how to make bombs on the internet and bought explosive materials and made four nail bombs.

He was arrested in Dundee, Scotland, on 4 November last year.
