Three men have admitted their part in a failed plot to spring a convict from a prison van which saw a man shot dead by police.

Izzet Eren was being transferred to Wood Green Crown Court from jail on 11 December when the escape attempt happened.

Nathan Mason, Gokay Sogucakli and Izzet Eren admitted their involvement at Woolwich Crown Court earlier.

Jermaine Baker, 28, was shot dead as police tried to foil the plot.

Eren, 32, and Mason, of Vicarage Road, Tottenham and Sogucakli, 18, of the Roundway, Tottenham, also admitted possessing an imitation firearm for criminal intent. They were remanded in custody and will be sentenced at a later date.

Two other suspects, Ozcan Eren, 31, of Douglas Road, Wood Green, and Eren Hayser, 25, of Kettering Road, Enfield, appeared in court earlier and pleaded not guilty to the same charges.

They have also been remanded in custody and a further pre-trial hearing is scheduled for them on 18 March.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission investigation is ongoing into the shooting of Mr Baker.
