A teenage extremist is facing jail after planning to launch a nail-bomb attack on an Elton John concert on the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.
Haroon Ali Syed, 19, pleaded guilty to researching targets including a concert by the singer in Hyde Park, as well as Buckingham Palace and Oxford Street.
