A 26-year-old man has pleaded guilty to plotting to kill around 100 people in a terror attack on Oxford Street.

Lewis Ludlow, who swore allegiance to Islamic State, told Old Bailey today that he was planning to hire a van and mow down shoppers outside the Disney store on Oxford Street.

Ludlow, from Rochester in Kent, had bought a phone under a false name between 15 March and 19 April, and wrote down his attack plans, which were later found ripped up in a bin.

He also identified Oxford Street as an “ideal” target, writing: “It is expected nearly 100 could be killed in the attack.”
