A ‘far-right extremist’ accused of launching a terror attack by ‘bursting into a UK law firm with a Nazi flag, knife and handcuffs in a bid to kill an immigration solicitor’ will stand trial next year.

Cavan Medlock, 29, is charged with preparing an act of terrorism by researching Duncan Lewis Solicitors in Harrow, north-west London with the intention of killing an immigration solicitor.

He also faces charges of threatening another with a bladed article in a public place, causing racially aggravated alarm, battery, harassment or distress and making a threat to kill – all in relation to an incident at a law firm in Harrow, north-west London, on September 7 last year.

Medlock, himself of north-west London, allegedly visited the firm’s offices while armed with a large knife, handcuffs and Nazi and Confederate flags.

During the attack, Medlock is alleged to have threatened a receptionist with the knife, before threatening to kill a solicitor and abusing staff because of their racial or religious backgrounds.

He was not in attendance at the Old Bailey on Wednesday as the Recorder of London, Judge Mark Lucraft, remanded him in custody in his absence ahead of a trial date set for March 7, 2022. 

The judge said the trial will be heard at Kingston Crown Court.
