The proscription meant that being a member of or inviting support for the organisation is a criminal offence, carrying a sentence of up to 10 years' imprisonment.

In the official list of proscribed groups, it is described as a "racist neo-Nazi group" that was established in 2013 and has branches across the UK which

"conduct provocative street demonstrations and stunts aimed at intimidating local communities".

When she banned the group, Ms Rudd said: "National Action is a racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic organisation which stirs up hatred,

glorifies violence and promotes a vile ideology, and I will not stand for it.

"It has absolutely no place in a Britain that works for everyone."

Police last arrested 11 people across England and Wales in September 2017 on suspicion of being members of the banned group.
