The Old Bailey hears police found detailed plans for several targets in the capital, including Oxford Street and Madame Tussauds.
A Muslim convert has pleaded guilty to plotting to kill around 100 people outside a Disney store on London’s Oxford Street.
Lewis Ludlow, 26, swore allegiance to Islamic State (IS) as he prepared to drive a van through London’s main shopping area or near Madame Tussauds.
Using a false name, he bought a mobile phone and wrote down his plans to carry out an attack in notes later found torn in pieces in a bin.
He picked out Oxford Street as an “ideal target” and wrote: “It is expected nearly 100 could be killed in the attack.”
Ludlow, of Rochester, in Kent, planned an attack after being stopped by police at Heathrow Airport in February as he tried to board a flight to the Philippines.
