The Birmingham-based gang planned to use eight suicide bombers, armed with guns, to cause “mass death” and “carnage” on the streets of Britain.
They planned to cause more damage than the 7/7 London bombings and wanted to carry out “another 9/11”.
Police believe had they been successful it would have been the largest terrorist atrocity on home soil.
