    Muhiddin Mire

    Sentencing Mire at the Old Bailey, Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC, Recorder of London, said that while he accepted the 30-year-old was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia at the time of the offence, he was also of the opinion he had been motivated by events in Syria.

    He continued: "In other words, because Muslims were being bombed in Syria, he was going to attack civilians here.

    "That was designed to intimidate a section of the public, and it was to advance an extreme cause."
