Terror suspect sentence postponed
Sentencing of British terror suspect Saajid Badat, who admitted plotting to blow up a plane, has been postponed.

The 25-year-old, of St James Street, Gloucester, was due to be sentenced on Friday, but the hearing has been adjourned and no new date set.

Last month, he pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to conspiring to place a device on an aircraft flying to the US.

The court heard that he backed out of the scheme, missing his flight and dismantling the bomb.

Badat admitted conspiring with fellow Briton Richard Reid and a Belgian terrorist to make the device.

More than 100 homes in Gloucester were evacuated during a police search of Badat's house in November 2003.
