In a convoy of armed guards and police helicopter the eight men arrested in anti-terror raids two weeks ago have appeared in court today with the charges of conspiracy to commit a public nuisance by using radioactive material, toxic gas, chemicals or explosives.

All eight men were casually dressed and stood silently in the dock as the charges were read out.

A ninth man, Matthew Monks, 32, of Sudbury, London, held with them on 3 August appeared at the same court charged with possession of a prohibited weapon. He was released on bail.

Police have charged the eight with conspiring "together and with other persons unknown" between 1 January 2000 and 4 August 2004 under the Criminal Law Act 1977.
