A man accused of running an anarchist website that published bomb-making instructions has appeared in court.

Toby Shone, 43, has been charged with three terror offences and four drug offences.

He appeared at a hearing at the Old Bailey via video-link from HMP Wandsworth on Friday.

Prosecution barrister Lee Ingham told the court: “The allegations relate to the running of a pro-anarchy website which included possession and putting instructions on a website of IEDs [improvised explosive devices] and the like.”

Mr Shone, of Drybrook in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, was arrested on 10 February.

He has been charged with providing a service that enabled people to access publications, intending the effect to be encouragement of acts of terrorism.

Mr Shone is also accused of inviting people to provide funding that could be used for the purposes of terrorism, and possession of material useful to a terrorist.

He has been charged with possession of Class A and B drugs with intent to supply, producing a class B drug and a further count of class AA drug possession.

Mr Shone was not asked to enter a plea and was remanded in custody ahead of a hearing at Bristol Crown Court on 4 June. His trial is scheduled to start on 6 October.
