A 17-year-old boy with far-right views who agreed to build guns for people online was sentenced today to more than five years in prison for terrorist offenses.

Paul Dunleavy from Rugby, Warwickshire, had joined the far-right group Fire War Division (FKD) in July 2019 and had started several online conversations.

The boy expressed his extreme views in the chats, stating that he was planning an empty firearm or had already converted it into a viable firearm.

Police found that his phone contained more than 90 documents related to firearms, explosives and military tactics, right-wing online material and online chats.

Today Dunleavy was sentenced to five and a half years in prison for collecting information on terrorism and commissioning, preparing and instigating terrorism.

He had admitted nine cases of terrorism intelligence gathering and last month a commission jury found him guilty of preparing and inciting terrorism.

Eleven clips of the March 2019 attacks on the Christchurch Mosque were also found on his cell phone, along with the shots in El Paso, Texas in August 2019 and the Dayton attacks, the Garlic Festival, and the Anders Breivik attack in Norway.

A search of the bedroom of the boy who declared his heroes Adolf Hitler and James Mason revealed several knives, air rifles, face covers and camouflage paints.

Shotgun shells and casings, tools and camping gear, and two makeshift cardboard targets were also discovered by detectives.

A notebook was confiscated that contained swastikas, details of attacks by individual wolves, and a replica logo depicting a far-right group he wanted to form.

Detective Chief Superintendent Kenny Bell, head of the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Division, said, “This boy had an unhealthy interest in other attacks around the world and knew exactly what online platforms to join to share his extreme views.

"He believed he had the skills to turn an empty firearm into a viable firearm and was ready to help others with his skills."

Mr Bell also spoke about the counter-terrorism work to combat all forms of extremist ideology.

“We have seen many convictions related to right-wing extremist terrorism in recent years, and this work is proceeding rapidly. These extreme groups can put public safety at risk.

“We work tirelessly to fight terrorism. Our absolute priority is to ensure the safety of the people who live, work and visit in the West Midlands region. & # 39;
