THIS is the Nazi-inspired bedroom of the Dearne Valley teenager who will be sentenced today for a terrorism offence.

Jack Coulson (19), of Roman Gardens, Mexborough, will appear at Leeds Crown Court after admitting to one offence under Section 58 of the Terrorism Act.

Coulson admitted possessing a record or document that may be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism. 

He was arrested in February at his home by Counter Terrorism Police. 

Coulson had previously been given a three-year youth rehabilitation order when aged 17 after being convicted of constructing an explosive device.

That conviction came after a two-week trial at the same court and Coulson, who lived in Bradford at the time, was not named due to an anonymity order granted because of his age.

He was arrested after he put a photo of his self-made pipe bomb on Snapchat. 

The post showed a crude, homemade device, accompanied by the words “Incendiary explosive and homemade black powder. More to come”.

Coulson told police at the time that the photograph was intended to frighten people.

Counter Terrorism Police North East released images of his Bradford bedroom after his February 2017 sentencing.

The images show far right and Nazi symbols adorning his bedroom walls. 

Posts he made on social media praising the murderer of MP Jo Cox and terror attacks were also revealed (below).

He called the MP’s murderer, Thomas Mair, a hero on Facebook and said there was “one less race traitor in Britain thanks to him”.

Coulson also posted on Snapchat: “4 terrorist attacks in a week. Isn’t diversity and multiculture great?”.

The latest charges stem from his possession of a document called The Big Book of Mischief, which contained information relating to terrorism.
