BNP official Mark Collett questioned over alleged threat to kill Nick Griffin

The BNP has been thrown into turmoil weeks ahead of the general election after a senior party member was arrested for allegedly threatening to kill Nick Griffin.

Key party officials have been summoned to a meeting tomorrow to discuss “urgent organisational matters” after Griffin and colleagues made statements to police resulting in the BNP’s publicity director, Mark Collett, being detained on Thursday.

Collett, 29, had been due to contest Labour MP David Blunkett’s Sheffield Brightside seat in the election but has been stripped of his position within the party which accused him of conspiring to launch a “palace coup” against Griffin.
