Four men who allegedly swore an allegiance to extremist group Islamic State (IS) have been charged with plotting a terror attack in London, Scotland Yard said.

Tarik Hassane, 21, Suhaib Majeed, 20, Nyall Hamlett, 24, and Momen Motasim, 21, have all been charged intending to commit acts of terrorism.

A fifth man, Nathan Cuffy, 25, has been charged with firearms offences.

Details of the charges, provided by the Metropolitan Police, allege that the four men conducted “hostile reconnaissance” of Shepherd’s Bush police station and White City Territorial Army Barracks and took an oath of allegiance to IS.

All five men live in addresses in London and will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today.

The offences allegedly took place between July 8 and October 7.

Further details of the charges allege the four terror suspects set up methods of secret communications and entered into covert discussions.

It is alleged the men sourced a firearm, moped and an extract of the “fatwa of Al Adnani” as part of the plot.

The four men allegedly viewed and retained an image sent via Instagram of two Metropolitan Police officers and two Metropolitan Police community support officers.

It is also alleged they possessed jihadist material, including articles with graphic images of the beheading of Steven Sotloff.
