A MUSLIM convert has pleaded guilty to plotting to kill around 100 people outside a Disney store on London’s Oxford Street.
Lewis Ludlow, 26, swore allegiance to Islamic State as he prepared to drive a van through London’s shopping area or near Madame Tussauds.
He picked out Oxford Street as an “ideal target” and wrote: “It is expected nearly 100 could be killed in the attack.”
Ludlow, of Rochester, in Kent, planned an attack after being stopped by police at Heathrow airport in February as he tried to board a flight to the Philippines.
He was due to go on trial in the autumn on two charges of preparing acts of terrorism and one of terror funding but at a hearing before Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC at the Old Bailey on Friday, he pleaded guilty to plotting an attack in the UK and funding IS abroad.
