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.
