Sky's Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt said: "I understand that the head of MI5, Andrew Parker, briefed Cabinet ministers today, such is the seriousness of what they believed they have uncovered". He revealed the information during a presentation to cabinet members on the terrorist threat facing the country, according to The Guardian.

Two men are due in court on terror charges on Wednesday after reportedly plotting to assassinate the Prime Minister.

One of those arrested is 20-year-old Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman. Last week, two men were arrested by armed police and charged with "preparing acts of terrorism". Officials suspect that Rahman had two explosive devices when he was arrested. His suspected co-conspirator was named as 21-year-old Mohammed Aqib Imran.

Imran also is accused of previously trying to secure a fake passport in a bid to reach Libya to join the Islamic State affiliate in the North African country. "Rather it is spreading to new areas, including trying to encourage attacks in the United Kingdom and elsewhere via propaganda on social media". However, the news made the headlines after the security officials released a report on the issue.
