A white supremacist who planned to carry out an attack at a pub's gay pride night is to be sentenced.
Ethan Stables was arrested by armed police as he made what prosecutors called "a final reconnaissance visit" to the New Empire in his home town of Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, last summer.
Social media posts to far-right pages revealed he was intent on "going to war" and wanted to "slaughter every single one" of the event's LGBT+ attendees.
Officers discovered that, as well as researching firearms, he had also looked into methods for making a bomb.
Following a trial at Leeds Crown Court, the then-20-year-old was convicted of preparing an act of terrorism, making threats to kill and possessing an explosive substance in suspicious circumstances.
