UK white supremacist who went on rampage, committed stabbing day after Christchurch terror attack jailed

A UK man who stabbed a 19-year-old the day after the Christchurch terror attack has been sentenced to more than 18 years in prison.

Vincent Fuller was sentenced in the Kingston Crown Court on Tuesday (local time) for attempted murder, the BBC reports. The court heard he'd set out to kill Muslims.

He also posted to Facebook before his rampage, praising the alleged Christchurch gunman.

Judge Peter Lodder QC labelled Fuller a terrorist.

The court heard that Fuller, 50, went around Surrey "looking for a target" on the night of the stabbing, the BBC reports.

Judge Lodder QC said it was "only by chance" the victim was not killed.

Fuller was "motivated by the cause of white supremacy, and his personal anti-Muslim sentiments", Judge Lodder QC said, according to the BBC.

"I find that it was your purpose to strike fear into the heart of people you described as non-English, in particular, Muslims.

"This was a terrorist act."
