Fairy lights bomb plot: Zahid Hussain guilty of terror preparation

A man has been found guilty of preparing for an act of terrorism after attempting to fashion a bomb using a pressure cooker and fairy lights.

Zahid Hussain, 29, filled the appliance with shrapnel and made "improvised igniters" from the festive decorations, Birmingham Crown Court heard.

Although the device would not have worked, the jury heard he had been considering targeting the main Birmingham to London railway line.
