In the summer of 2017, Jack Renshaw, then aged 22, of the neo-Nazi group National Action, sat in a pub in Warrington and told his comrades about his plan to kill the Labour MP Rosie Cooper and DC Victoria Henderson, a police officer who had been investigating him. Around the table was Robbie Mullen, who had become disillusioned and passed on details of the plot to Matthew Collins of the anti-racism charity Hope Not Hate.
The two men tell Anushka Asthana their extraordinary story of covert meetings and intelligence gathering from within one of Britain’s most dangerous neo-Nazi groups. Last week, Renshaw was sentenced to life in prison after admitting the plot.
