A 16-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to two terror charges after he admitted to owning explosive chemicals, bomb-making books and diagrams.

Birmingham Magistrates' Court heard how the boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had a host of literature including a book on how to make the explosive Semtex. Titles in his possession included: The Terrorist Handbook, Advanced Improvised Explosives and CIA Explosives For Sabotage Manual.

He also admitted that these books would be considered useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

The teenager, who was arrested at his home in Northamptonshire in February last year, also confessed to having sulphur powder and potassium nitrate.

In addition, he had a number of prohibited images of children in Northamptonshire. Since his arrest he has been detained under the Mental Health Act in secure accommodation in the West Midlands area, said Mark Topping, prosecuting.
