Mohammed Sajid Khan, 33, and his wife Shasta, 38, bought substances and equipment from supermarkets to assemble an improvised explosive device to carry out a terrorist attack after scoping Jewish targets, Manchester Crown Court heard.

Behind their ”apparent normality of daily life”, Khan, an unemployed car valeter, and his hairdresser wife planned to carry out ”jihad at home”, Bobbie Cheema, prosecuting, told the court.

And the pair were only ”mercifully” stopped by chance after a minor domestic row led to police being called to their house in Oldham, Greater Manchester.

Mrs Khan decided to ”spill the beans” to police after her brother told officers called to the row ”I think he’s a home-grown terrorist”.

Mohammed Sajid Khan has already pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to terrorism offences but his wife has denied any involvement.
