Extremist ordered to read books is jailed

A man told by a judge to read classic literature after being found guilty of a terrorism offence will be jailed after a suspended sentence was quashed. Ben John, who police described as a white supremacist, was given a two-year suspended sentence in August but the Court of Appeal ruled the original sentence was unlawful and ordered John to serve two years in prison.

Richard Wormald QC appeared for Mr John.
