The 17-year-old was arrested just hours before he planned to launch an attack on "non-believers" in the Welsh city.


A teenager has been jailed for a minimum of 11 years after planning an Islamic State-inspired vehicle attack in Cardiff.

Lloyd Gunton, 17, had armed himself with a hammer and knife and wrote what was described as a martyrdom letter as part of his plot to kill "non-believers" in Cardiff.

He was convicted of preparing for terrorist acts after a nine-day trial at Birmingham Crown Court late last year, but today was given a life sentence
