5 men and a woman have been arrested in the UK on suspicion of terrorism offences and being members of the banned far-right group National Action.  West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit carried out the arrests with the help of other counter-terrorism units across the UK.  National Action was made a proscribed terrorist organisation in December 2016, becoming the first extreme right-wing group to be outlawed in the UK, and is described as a “racist neo-Nazi group” that was established in 2013 and has branches across the UK which “conduct provocative street demonstrations and stunts aimed at intimidating local communities”.
