Four men jailed over a failed plot to bomb London in 2005 are launching a legal bid to overturn their convictions after a top government forensic scientist cast serious doubt about key evidence presented during their 2007 trial, Channel 4 News has reported.

Lawyers for Muktar Ibrahim, Yassin Omar and Ramzi Mohammed will lodge papers as early as tomorrow with the Criminal Cases Review Commission.

The fourth man convicted, Manfo Asiedu, will petition the Court of Appeal.
