A teenage girl has appeared in court on terror charges after she was allegedly in contact with an Islamic State jihadist and made attempts to join the group.

The 17-year-old, from central London, was arrested along with a 20-year-old woman by anti-terror detectives in August last year.

Today she was charged with the intention of committing acts of terrorism.
