Ethan Stables, 20, planned to strike at the LGBTI event at the New Empire pub in Barrow, Cumbria, in June 2017. He claimed he posted comments on Facebook to impress far-right friends and was “ashamed” as he was bisexual.

Leeds Crown Court heard he was planning to use an axe and machete during the attack, but the plan was foiled after he told people about it on Facebook.
