A 29-year-old man has been jailed for more than three years after admitting possessing terrorist propaganda.

Pa Modou Jobe admitted terrorism offences after officers found training manuals and mobile phone footage of a police building in his home.

Jobe, from Witton Road, Aston, Birmingham, who pleaded guilty at the city's crown court, was sentenced to three years and nine months in prison.

Items were recovered from his home in a police search in December 2006.

'Strong evidence'

His computer, electronic equipment, CDs, DVDs, an iPod and a mobile phone were recovered.

He was arrested and charged in May 2007.

Jobe admitted four counts of possessing a document or record containing information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

Assistant Chief Constable of West Midlands Police, Anil Patani, said: "We believed the video was intended to be used by Jobe or others to aid terrorist purposes.

"The guilty plea demonstrates the strength of our evidence and the thoroughness of the investigation.

"It also shows our determination to protect our communities from the threat of terrorism."
