Muslim family who plotted bloodthirsty terror attack in West Midlands convicted

Ummariyat Mirza, 21, researched terror acts and bought a steel hunting blade and a rubber training knife, which he used to practise on a training dummy at his home in St Agatha’s Road, Alum Rock, Birmingham.

The former accountant also carried out extensive research into potential targets in the region, including military bases, which neither the police or intelligence services will disclose for security reasons.
