Terror attack plotter Mubashir Jamil jailed for six years

A terror plotter who offered to wear a suicide vest and "press the button on the same day" has been jailed.

Mubashir Jamil, 22, was convicted of preparing acts of terrorism after being caught in a covert police operation.

During his trial, the Old Bailey heard he wanted to join so-called Islamic State (IS) to rid himself of "evil spirits".

Jamil, from Luton, was jailed for six years, part of which will be served in a secure hospital.

The defendant, an Amazon warehouse worker and former Challney High School for Boys pupil, became obsessed with the idea of martyrdom after surfing the internet for IS propaganda, the court had heard.
