The week after the Manchester Arena bombing in which 22 died and hundreds were injured, several men in their 20s and early 30s arrived in the city to view its aftermath for themselves.
But unlike the many others who visited the site to leave flowers and cards, the men – members of the banned far-right terrorist group National Action – had not come to pay their respects.
“They went not to condemn the bombing or pay tribute to the victims of the jihadi bomber,” said Matthew Collins of the anti-fascist campaign group Hope Not Hate. “They went to admire his work. That is what the police don’t understand. They may look like a bunch of skinny schoolboys in the main, but they carry with them an absolutely horrendous death wish.”
