Man 'on way to kill PM had cache of weapons'

Police in London found a cache of weapons including a 950,000 volt stun gun in the car of a man who said he was on his way to kill the Prime Minister, a court has heard.

Irfaq Naz, 34, also had hammers, kitchen knives, a machete, an unsheathed Samurai sword and masking tape in his Vauxhall Astra when he was stopped in July after going the wrong way down a north London street.

Officers later searched his home in Middlesbrough and found the Downing Street postcode and the names of other prominent political figures.

The taxi driver was detained under the Mental Health Act, and last month admitted possessing a prohibited weapon, three counts of possessing an offensive weapon, seven counts of having a bladed article and dangerous driving.
