The planned appeal by the four men convicted of a failed bomb plot hinges on whether the home-made explosives they were carrying were viable.
All four men claim that the plot was an elaborate hoax and that they never intended carry out a bombing.

It is this conclusion that will be called into question if the men file appeal papers.
