The Oldham couple have both been convicted of preparing terrorist acts, following their conversion to radical Islam. Police found home-made bomb-making materials in their house, together with al-Qaeda-inspired literature encouraging 'jihad [holy war] from home'.

The couple had also recorded postcodes of Orthodox Jewish areas in Bury, which police believe were probable targets.
