A jury has found Abdulla Ahmed Ali, 28, Tanvir Hussain, 28, and Assad Sarwar, 29, guilty of plotting to kill thousands of people by blowing up planes from London to North America with home-made liquid bombs.

The three were previously found guilty of conspiracy to murder involving liquid bombs - but that jury could not decide whether the three men's plans extended to detonating the devices on planes.

The Government's independent reviewer of terrorism, Lord Carlile said it was a very serious plot and the prosecution showed "great determination and good judgement" in deciding to have a retrial.
