Man admits threats to kill Harry

A man has admitted making threats to kill Prince Harry, Scotland Yard said.

Ashraf Islam, 30, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to the offence at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on May 25 and is in custody awaiting sentencing.

He was arrested after attending Hounslow police station, west London, on May 23 - just one day after the murder of soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich, south-east London.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command investigated the case, but no terror charges were brought against Islam, a spokesman for Scotland Yard said.
