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”.
