The wife of a convicted terrorist, who pleaded guilty to failing to provide information that might have helped in his arrest and prosecution, is to be sentenced later.

Ayan Hadi, who's 31 and from Acton, is the wife of former BBC security guard Richard Dart, who was jailed in April.

He and two other men had planned to target the town of Wootton Bassett. At their trial, the judge described them all as "committed fundamentalists" who would have been prepared to kill.

Wife of Muslim terror convert pleads guilty of not providing information

The wife of a white Muslim convert jailed for terrorism has pleaded guilty to failing to provide information that might have helped in his arrest and prosecution.

31 year old Ayan Hadi from Acton, West London, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to failing to provide information that she knew or believed might have helped secure the apprehension, prosecution or conviction of her husband Richard Dart for an act of terrorism.

Dart was jailed for six years in April with two co-conspirators Jahangir Alom and Imran Mahmood for engaging in conduct in preparation of acts of terrorism.

She will be sentenced on August 16.

Terror plot trio 'had not ruled out UK attack'

Mahmood and Dart were both given extended sentences and will serve two-thirds of their prison terms rather than half, and will spend five years on licence.

Dart refused to stand when he was sentenced, saying: "I don't wish to stand up, I believe ruling and judging is only for Allah."

The judge said that they were all "committed fundamentalists" who would have been prepared to kill.

He told Dart and Mahmood:

I'm satisfied to the required criminal standard that neither of you had ruled out an attack in the United Kingdom, and that you, Mahmood, were looking at arming yourself with a bomb.

Dart was jailed for six years, Alom for four years and six months and Mahmood for nine years and nine months.

Mr Justice Simon told the trio they held "radical Islamist beliefs and have shown yourselves to be committed to acts of terrorism".

They admitted the offence between July 2010 and July last year at a previous hearing last month.
