Seven copies of a document called '39 ways to serve and participate in Jihad' were also allegedly downloaded and stored on the defendant's three hard drives. The jury also heard Mr Benares had done a number of internet searches and appeared to have been a registered user of an extremist website.
As well as alleged computer evidence, the jury was also told the defendant's mobile phone was examined - showing a number of text messages between Benares and two known extremists: Anjem Choudhary, the former leader of proscribed terrorist group Al Mahajiroun, and convicted terrorist Abu Izzadeen.
