his lawyer claims Breivik will tell the courts that he re­grets not go­ing even fur­ther.

The 33-year-old has con­fessed to mur­der but re­jects a charge of ter­ror­ism, ar­gu­ing that his acts are part of a war against mil­i­tant Is­lam.

Breivik claimed mem­ber­ship of a se­cret or­gan­i­sa­tion called the Knights Tem­plar, an or­gan­i­sa­tion be­lieved to have links in Bri­tain.

Our se­cu­rity source said: “This is the nightmare sce­nario – we can­not pre­dict or mon­i­tor peo­ple like this.

“We know there are right-wing loons like Bre­vik in Bri­tain sit­ting and plot­ting on their bed­rooms. Most do noth­ing but oc­ca­sion­ally they strike.

“They could be your neigh­bour and you’d never know un­til they’re on the news with a gun or a nail­bomb.

“Peo­ple like Derek Bird in Cum­bria or Michael Ryan in Hunger­ford.

“This is worst case sce­nario stuff and all we can do is hope we re­act quickly enough to stop an in­ci­dent turn­ing into a dis­as­ter.”
