Jo Cox murder trial: 'Nazi material' found at accused's home
Nazi-related material was found when police raided the home of the man accused of killing the Labour MP Jo Cox, the Old Bailey has heard.

Officers found an SS officer's book on race theory and mate selection, along with other white supremacist texts, when they raided the home of Thomas Mair after his arrest, the jury heard.

Ms Cox died after she was shot three times and received 15 stab wounds in Birstall, West Yorkshire, on 16 June.

Mr Mair, 53, denies her murder.

Mr Mair, from Birstall, also denies grievous bodily harm with intent, possession of a firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence and possession of an offensive weapon - a dagger.


The jury heard officers found a bookcase with a number of German military history books organised "very neatly" and an object of a bird that appeared to be an eagle with a swastika on it.

They also found a book entitled March of the Titans: The Complete History of the White Race and a book on the "politics of the Holocaust", among other texts.

A press cutting in relation to Anders Brevik, who murdered 77 people in twin attacks in Norway in July 2011, was also found, the court heard.
