It follows the execution of a search warrant by the Eastern Region Counter Terrorism Policing Command, supported by Herts Police and firearms officers, at a Longcroft Lane property last Friday.

The Metropolitan Police has now taken over the case, and following yesterday’s hearing a spokesman confirmed Sneddon was remanded in custody and will next appear at the Old Bailey on October 13.

He did not give a plea, the spokesman added.
