Mexborough teenager in court on terrorism charge

A TEENAGER from the Dearne Valley is set to appear in court this morning (Wednesday) charged with a terrorism offence.

Jack Coulson (18), of Roman Gardens, Mexborough, will appear via video link at Westminster Magistrates' Court charged with one offence under Section 58 of the Terrorism Act.

A spokeswoman from Counter Terrorism Policing North East said he was arrested yesterday (Tuesday) from his home address on suspicion of possessing a record or document that may be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

Coulson was charged last night and remanded in custody.
