A neo-Nazi paedophile who let his five-year-old son sleep in a bed with four nail bombs underneath has been released from jail after finishing his 16-year sentence.
White-supremacist Martyn Gilleard, now 47, who idolised Adolf Hitler, is among a small number of prisoners forced to complete their full sentence before being released.
Gilleard, then 31, was given 16 years at Leeds Crown Court in June 2008 after being found guilty of terrorist offences and also possessing child pornography.
At the time, in a biting judgement, Gilleard was described as ‘extremely dangerous’ and a person who had ‘a deep-seated hatred of persons who are black, Asian and Jewish.’
Under current law, convicted terrorists such as who Gilleard are on a fixed determinate sentence and have behaved in prison will be released with a limited number of restrictions.

For Gilleard, from Goole, East Yorkshire, these restrictions are unlikely to be more than a police notification order, which requires those given more than 12 months for terror offences to advise the police of practices such as unauthorised travel.
The Home Office says it does not comment on individual cases, so it is not known if Gilleard has any new restrictions placed on him.
Other typical areas covered by the order include providing personal information such as home address, date of birth, national insurance number, vehicle details, and bank account details.
MailOnline can reveal that Gilleard was released ‘earlier this year.’ The Ministry of Justice would not comment but confirmed he had been freed. It is believed Gilleard was released around ‘April.’
The limited amount of surveillance will be of concern as Judge John Milford QC said in summing up he believed Gilleard’s extreme and violent views were ‘still burning bright’, that he was working as a ‘lone wolf,’ and that he was ‘unrepentant’.
The judge added: ‘You (Gilleard) believe that the time has come to stop the talking and to engage in direct action against them.’
Gilleard was sentenced to 11 years for terrorism offences and five years following the discovery of child pornography at his flat.
The court heard he had wanted to ‘save’ Britain from ‘multi-racial peril’.
Police found four nail bombs, bladed weapons, bullets, documents about terrorism and extreme right-wing literature when they were searching his flat for child pornography in October 2007.
Detectives also discovered about 39,000 indecent images, the films and photographs ranged from category one to five – five being the most serious. Gilleard was later arrested in Dundee.

Gilleard admitted to 10 specimen counts of possessing indecent images of children, on the first day of his trial for the terrorism offences. The jury were not told of these offences until the end of his terrorism trial.
During the six-day trial, Gilleard also admitted having a collection of Nazi memorabilia, saying Nazism had appealed to him because of the way the Nazis had ‘rebuilt’ Germany.
The jury was told police had found ‘potentially lethal bladed weapons’, 34 bullets for a .22 calibre firearm, and printouts from the internet about committing acts of terrorism.
These included instructions on how to make a bomb and how to kill someone with poison.
Commenting on Gilleard’s child pornography offences, Ch Insp Chris Kelk, of Humberside Police, said: ‘The images include some of the most disturbing my team and I have ever seen and by admitting his crimes it has prevented the images being seen by jury members.’
He commended his team for their professionalism despite the ‘distressing nature’ of the images.
During the trial, explaining why he made the bombs, Gilleard said: ‘I’d had a couple of cans. I was just sat around bored.’
‘An idea popped up and I thought, ‘Why not?’ I thought, ‘I’ve got pretty much what I need,’ and I threw them together.’
But Peter McDonagh, of the Crown Prosecution Service’s Counter Terrorism Division, described Gilleard as someone who wanted to act.
‘This is a man who is comfortable with the idea of a race war and was preparing for one,’ he said.
