Christo­pher Partington, 34, Lit­tle Hul­ton

Man­u­als de­tail­ing how to make ex­plo­sives, pic­tures of guns, plus graphic videos of be­head­ings and tor­ture were found in­side Christo­pher Partington’s home.

Partington ini­tially claimed he had the ex­trem­ist ma­te­rial on his phone be­cause he was bored.

In a po­lice in­ter­view, he de­nied be­ing a ter­ror­ist and tried to pass the blame onto oth­ers or say he’d stum­bled across the doc­u­ments by ac­ci­dent.

But at Manch­ester Crown Court, Partington pleaded guilty to pos­sess­ing in­for­ma­tion likely to be use­ful for the pur­poses of ter­ror­ism, and pos­ses­sion of am­mu­ni­tion which breached a pre­vi­ous or­der. He was jailed for three years and two months.
