Anzac Day terror plot: Blackburn teenager admits inciting attack

A teenager from Blackburn has admitted involvement in a terror plot to attack an Anzac Day parade in Australia.

The 15-year-old pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to one count of inciting terrorism by encouraging the murder of police officers during the event in Melbourne. No attack ever took place.

He appeared via video link from Manchester Crown Court, speaking only to enter his plea.

The boy cannot be named for legal reasons.

According to the charge, he incited a person to commit an act of terrorism, wholly or partly outside the UK, namely the murder of police officers during an attack on the annual Anzac Day parade.

The prosecution dropped a second charge of inciting terrorism overseas in relation to beheading a person in Australia.

The teenager will be sentenced in Manchester on 3 September.

Anzac Day, held on 25 April each year, commemorates the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps’ World War One battle in Gallipoli.
