Four Islamists have admitted to planning a number of terrorist plots across London, including a foiled attempt to bomb the London Stock Exchange.

21-year-old Mohammed Chowdhury, of Tower Hamlets in East London, is said to be the ‘lynchpin’ of the group, and had been under scrutiny from Scotland in the months leading to his arrest in December 2010.

A total of nine fundamentalists had been apprehended, though five more have yet to admit guilt and are awaiting trial.

Other targets discussed, both online and during meetings in public places, included Boris Johnson's house, two Rabbis and the Palace of Westminster.
