A man who plotted attacks on Jews and discussed murdering the Queen has been jailed for eight years.
Aweys Shikhey, a delivery driver of Somali origin from Tottenham, discussed killing “the old woman Elizabeth” and former Prime Minister David Cameron, and attacking Jewish football fans with an AK-47 at nearby White Hart Lane and Stamford Hill – the home grounds of Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea – in online chat rooms.
He also applied for loans to fund a trip to join ISIS, securing £10,000 from Barclays for a “wedding”.
Mr Shikhey was convicted of preparing terrorist acts at the Old Bailey on 15th March 2018 and jailed for eight years.
