Jailed Wrexham bin man ‘wanted to bomb military bases’
A Wrexham binman who researched bomb attacks on UK military targets and Downing Street security has been jailed for five years and four months.
Aabid Ali – known as Darren Glennon before he converted to Islam – told his wife he wanted to bomb an RAF base.
He was arrested in November after radicalisation concerns were raised and pleaded guilty to a number of offences.
The judge at Manchester Crown Court said Ali “plainly intended to encourage terrorism”.
