He was arrested at the 40 Commando base in Taunton, Somerset, after four of the bombs were planted and two went off.

Names and addresses of police officers were on a list of  government and military targets he is said to have kept.

Prosecutor Richard Whittam QC said Maxwell had a document called ‘operations’ containing ‘targeting details’.
He said : “It lists key government and military defence locations, names of military staff, names of Security Service and police personnel with their addresses.”
“He had a list, alphabetically, of people living in Northern Ireland,” said Mr Whittam, who added that Maxwell had highlighted images of power stations, police stations and army barracks in the province.

The dad, of Exminster, Devon — who was born in Co Antrim — admits bomb and weapons charges plus drug offences and fraud.

His sentencing hearing continues.
