A MUM and dad accused of membership of a banned extreme far-right terrorist group named their baby after Adolf Hitler, a court heard.

Adam Thomas, 22, and his partner Claudia Patatas, 38, gave their child the middle name Adolf, which the prosecution alleged was in honour of the infamous Nazi leader.

The Crown also claimed the couple have links with 'prominent members' Christopher Lythgoe, of Greymist Avenue, Woolston, and Matthew Hankinson, from Merseyside, who were convicted after trial in July.

Thomas and Patatas, both from Oxfordshire, are on trial at Birmingham Crown Court accused of being members of the group National Action.

Co-defendant Daniel Bogunovic, 27, from Leicester, is also in the dock facing the same membership charge.

Opening the case, Barnaby Jameson, prosecuting, told jurors on Tuesday all three defendants were alleged members of National Action - a group 'so extreme and violent' it was banned by the Government in December 2016.

He Jameson said: "This case is about a specific type of terror.

"It is a terror fuelled by hatred and division. It is a terror born out of fanatical and tribal belief in white supremacy.

"It is a terror that regards anyone who falls outside a cult of violent white racial supremacy as sub-human.

"Those that fall into the sub-human category are primarily blacks, Jews and Asians.

"Others in that category include gays, Communists and feminists.

"The cult had particular venom for female Labour MPs perceived as sympathetic to migrants.

"It is a terror that can be summarised in two words: 'White Jihad' - in other words, a white holy war.

"This terror was spread by a small cell of fanatics of whom you will hear a great deal."

Patatas, Thomas and Bogunovic deny all the charges and the trial, expected to last four weeks, continues.
