A medical student has pleaded guilty to plotting a series of Isis-inspired drive-by shootings intended to kill police, soldiers and civilians in London.

Tarik Hassane, 22, changed his plea at the Old Bailey today, admitting conspiracy to murder and prepration of terrorist acts.

He is charged with conspiring with his three co-defendents and others to murder "a person or persons unknown" before 8 July and 25 September 2014.

The court heard how the group researched, planned and sourced a weapon and ammunition, with a "view to commenting an attack or attacks on a person or persons within the United Kingdom".

His co-defenders, Nathan Cuffy, 26, Suhaib Majeed, 21 and Nyall Hamlett, 25, deny the charges.

Hassane was remanded in custody. The case is adjourned until Monday.
