The youngest person to be convicted of planning a terrorist attack in the UK has been jailed.

The now 17-year-old wrote about an “inevitable race war” in his diary and listed locations from his home city of Durham in a “guerrilla warfare” manual.

He was sentenced to six years and eight months at Manchester Crown Court.
