The AP reports via the Guardian:
A British National party election candidate and a dentist appeared in court yesterday accused of possessing an explosive substance. Robert Cottage, 49, of Colne, Lancashire, and David Jackson, 62, of Nelson, Lancashire, were charged under the Explosive Substances Act after chemical components were allegedly found at Mr Cottage's house. Mr Cottage stood for the BNP in this year's local elections in Colne. Both were remanded in custody at Preston crown court. No application for bail was made and the case was adjourned until January 15. A provisional trial date has been set for February 12 in Manchester.
