Teenager Given Life Sentence For Planned Attack At Justin Bieber Event

A teenager who planned an Islamic State-inspired terrorist attack on a pop concert a month after the Manchester Arena bombing (last May) has been given a life sentence and told he will serve at least 11 years in prison before being considered for parole.

Lloyd Gunton, 17, researched security for a Justin Bieber gig in Cardiff and wrote a “martyrdom letter”. Police raided the boy’s home in south Wales on the day of the show and found a claw hammer and a gutting knife in his school rucksack.
