The son of radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza has been convicted of carrying out an armed raid at a jewellers.

Imran Mostafa – whose father faces deportation from the UK – carried out the smash-and-grab raid with Jonathon Abdul, 17, in King's Lynn, Norfolk, on 31 January. Mostafa, 20, from Slough, denied robbery and possession of a firearm with intent but was convicted at Norwich Crown Court.

Jewellery worth about £75,000 was taken in the raid. Both Mostafa and Abdul, from Fulham, west London, will be sentenced at a future date alongside Ossama Hamed, 19, from Fulham, west London, and Ahmed Ahmed, 20, from Enfield, who had previously admitted the same charges.

Details of Mostafa's parentage had been made the subject of a contempt of court order by Judge Peter Jacobs, which was lifted after jurors reached their verdicts.
