Dewsbury EDL activist Daniel Smith has today been jailed for 9 years for his terrifying attack on an Asian family.
Smith, 39 from Thornhill Lees, Dewsbury broke down his neighbours door armed with a collection of knives and threatened to kill the family.
Leeds Crown Court heard how Daniel Smith had 167 previous convictions before he was locked up for 10 further offences today.
Smith was removed from the court before his sentenced was heard after destroying a set of toilets in the cells.
In May, Smith pleaded guilty to charges of burglary, common assault, possessing an offensive weapon and making threats to kill.
Sentencing, Judge Guy Kearl QC, said: “They were very real threats, the victims believed, being confronted in their house by a man who they believed was going to kill them.”
Smith was sentenced to nine years in prison and given a restraining order banning him from contact with the family.
