A Surrey man from Redhill has pleaded not guilty to a string of terror-related offences during a trial at the Old Bailey.

48-year-old Asad Bhatti appeared at the Old Bailey by video link from custody on Friday (July 16) to plead not guilty to two charges of possessing explosives, making explosive substances and two further charges of possession for terrorist purposes.

He was arrested at his Redhill home by counter-terrorism officers on January 8.

Bhatti is accused of possessing chemicals found in a storage unit that were capable of producing the explosive substance nitroglycerin, one of the components of dynamite among other explosives.

Three remote detonators, including an improvised detonator that contained traces of an explosive substance, were also allegedly found at his home address and the unit.
