A 16-year-old boy set up an extremist right-wing group including a member who plotted a terrorism attack, it can now be revealed.

Westminster Magistrates' Court heard the teenager ran "The British Hand" from 5 August last year when he was 14 on the encrypted Telegram app.

One group member, Matthew Cronjager, from Essex, was convicted of planning terrorist acts on 3 September.
