Liam Lyburd, 19, has been convicted of planning mass murder at Newcastle College, following a trial at Newcastle Crown Court.

He will be sentenced on 25th September after a psychiatric report has been prepared.

"You will appreciate only a very substantial sentence in custody is appropriate in this case."

– Judge Paul Sloan QC

Liam Lyburd had admitted nine charges relating to making five pipe bombs, two home-made explosive devices, possessing a handgun and ammunition and CS gas.

A jury found him guilty of eight charges of possessing those items with an intent to endanger life at Newcastle College. He had denied all eight charges.

"The safety of our students and staff is always our top priority and we would like to thank Northumbria Police, who we worked closely with throughout the incident."
