Police in London also charged the teenager yesterday with arranging to receive weapons in order to conduct an attack in Britain.

She is also alleged to have received instructions on how to train and use weapons and asked for assistance in completing a plan, contrary to the Terrorism Act 2006.

The charge follows an investigation by officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command.

She was also previously charged on April 12 with acts in preparation contrary to section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006.

The teenager is due to appear at the Old Bailey tomorrow in relation to these matters.
