Police 'delighted' as EDL rally bomb plotters jailed

Six men from the West Midlands have been jailed for up to 19-and-a-half years each for planning to bomb an English Defence League rally.

Omar Khan, Jewel Uddin, Mohammed Hasseen, Mohammed Saud, Zohaib Ahmed and Anzal Hussain had all admitted terrorism offences in April.

Five of the men took a bomb, knives and sawn-off shotguns to the rally.

But the plotters arrived after the EDL event - held last June in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire - had ended.

Assistant Chief Constable Marcus Beale from West Midlands Police said he was "delighted" the men had been jailed.
