A man from Stratford has pleaded guilty to terrorism charges at the Old Bailey today.

Appearing via video-link, Jahangir Alom pleaded guilty to preparing for terrorism by travelling to Pakistan for terrorism training.

The 26-year-old, of Abbey Road, appeared alongside Muslim convert Richard Dart, 29, of Broadway, Ealing, and Imran Mahmood, 21, from Dabbs Hill Lane, Northolt.

The trio was arrested in July last year.

The men are alleged to have gone to Pakistan for terror training, travelled abroad to commit acts of terrorism and provided information about terrorism training and operational security while there.

They appeared before Mr Justice Simon for a plea and case management hearing. Their trial was due to start in April.
