LONDON (AP) - A British white supremacist has pleaded guilty to producing the deadly poison ricin and preparing for acts of terrorism.

Truck driver Ian Davison and his teenage son Nicky were arrested in June in northern England.

Police say traces of ricin were found in a jam jar at Davison's home. The poison has no antidote and can be lethal in very small amounts.

Davison pleaded guilty Monday at Newcastle Crown Court to producing a chemical weapon - ricin - and preparing for acts of terrorism. Details of his targets were not released.

Nicky Davison has been charged with possessing information likely to be useful to a terrorist and has been released on bail until his trial next month.

The judge said Ian Davison would be sentenced after his son's trial.
