A 17-year-old boy accused of planning a terror attack in Cardiff will go on trial later this year.

The teenager, from Rhondda Cynon Taff, is charged with preparation of terrorist acts by obtaining a knife and hammer last month.

He is also accused of posting on the Instagram social network to encourage others to commit acts of terror.

A 10-day trial will take place at Birmingham Crown Court from 13 November.

The Old Bailey judge said on Thursday a plea hearing would be set for October.
