A homeless man has admitted making threats to kill Prince Harry, Scotland Yard has said.

Ashraf Islam, 30, is in custody awaiting sentencing after he pleaded guilty to the offence at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on 25 May.

He was arrested after attending Hounslow police station, west London, on 23 May - a day after soldier Lee Rigby was murdered in Woolwich.

Terror police investigated Islam's case but no terror charges were brought.

Prince Harry has served two tours in Afghanistan, the first as a forward air controller - directing air strikes - and the second as an Army helicopter pilot.
