A MAN has appeared in court today charged with terror offences after being arrested at Lowestoft railway station.

Neil Lewington, 43, of Church End Lane, Tilehurst, Reading, has been charged with 11 offences, 10 of which fall under the Terrorism Act and the other under the Explosives Act.

One charge includes travelling from Reading in Berkshire to Lowestoft in Suffolk with two improvised explosive devices.

He was arrested after police found a suspected explosive device when they searched a man at Lowestoft railway station on October 30.

The Journal revealed how bomb disposal experts were called to Lowestoft last month, after police had arrested a 43-year-old man on suspicion of being drunk and verbally abusive on a train.

The man was carrying what appeared to be part of an incendiary device.

Today, Lewington spoke only to confirm his name and address when he appeared before the City of Westminster magistrates' court.

He was remanded to appear at the Central Criminal Court for a preliminary hearing on November 28.
