A call centre worker accused of downloading so-called Islamic State manuals is set to stand trial in August.

Nathan Saunders, 23, from Tredegar, Blaenau Gwent, faces five charges of possessing a record of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

Mr Saunders made his first appearance before the Old Bailey on Thursday.

He was remanded in custody.

When he was arrested on 8 February, four issues of the IS publication Rumiyah were allegedly found on his phone as well as a copy of the Anarchist Cookbook.

Mr Justice Holroyde set a timetable for the case and ordered it to be heard by Judge Richard Marks QC at the Old Bailey.

A plea and case management hearing was set for 9 June with a provisional seven-day trial to start on 7 August.
