A Royal Marine has appeared in court charged with Northern Ireland-linked terror offences.
Ciaran Maxwell, 30, of Exminster, Devon, who was born in Ulster, is accused of stashing explosives and weapons in purpose-built caches in England and Northern Ireland over five years.
He also allegedly compiled a library of terrorism documents, including instructions on how to make explosives and tactics used by terrorist organisations.
Maxwell, wearing a grey tracksuit and flanked by two plain-clothed officers in the dock, stood up to confirm his details in a Northern Irish accent.
He has not yet entered any plea to the charges against him and was remanded into police custody.
The case was adjourned until Monday at Westminster Magistrates Court to give the police more time to investigate.
It is alleged that between January 1 2011 and August 24 2016, Maxwell manufactured explosive substances and constructed explosive devices.
Maxwell is also charged with getting an image of an adapted Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) pass card and items of PSNI uniform.
