A man from Lincoln has been charged in connection with the investigation into the so-called 'Punish A Muslim Day' letters.

David Parnham, 35, is accused of 14 offences including one count of soliciting to murder.

He is also charged with two counts of sending a number of letters promoting a 'Punish A Muslim Day', encouraging the commission of one or more of a number of offences.

Parnham faces five further counts of sending a substance with the intention of inducing in a person a belief that it is likely to contain a noxious substance, five counts of sending a number of letters conveying a threat and one count of making a bomb hoax.

Parnham is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday. He was arrested on Tuesday by counter-terrorism police as part of an intelligence operation.

A residential property and office building in Lincoln city centre were searched as part of the investigation.
