Police in Newcastle believe they have foiled a plot "to cause serious harm" at a college. Northumbria cops said "their investigation had prevented the attack from taking place".

18-year-old man charged with possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life, possessing ammunition with intent to endanger life, and five counts of possessing an explosive substance, namely a pipe bomb, with intent to endanger life. Info from Sky online. Breaking about 0100 hrs today.
 
Good drills by plod. Be interesting to see if this loon was ID'd by sigint or humint guven all the who ha about the new GCHQ gaffer.
 
Interesting that they prominently describe him as a "white male" when the ethnicity of what subsequently turns out NOT to be a "white male" in arrests is rarely mentioned at the initial point.

I noticed this aswell. I live in the area, it is has a high population of what some people refer to as 'Ethic Minorities'.

I think they didn't want people jumping to conclusions and sticking the boot into obvious religious groups. The comments on the Evening Chronicles facebook page were interesting, to say the least.

Was recently a case of ISIS graffiti getting spray painted on some trading units in the same area, with similar comments flying back and forward.

Being a white male means sod all these days. It was a white male with a ginger beard who was arrested for a threat to Harry wasn't it?

According to the link above
"Concerns were raised on Monday morning (November 3) for the welfare of a man living at an address at Hamilton Place, in Newcastle’s west end, following a series of posts on Facebook."
So we can close GCHQ now.
 
They must have edited the report.

Nothing about a 'white male' as per the time stamp of this post..

In any event the Islamic threat sits along side the traditional nutter threats we have always faced.
 
It's there on the Chronclelive link. Third paragraph.

What's more scary is the chief plod: she's that woman with the bad hairstyle.

On the point and on topic, serious harm was intended at Newcastle College.So Plod did very well, and it was seemingly a local that bubbled this cretin. He was up in court today- all in all this was good drills. Maybe more news will come through.

The college's former pupils include TV presenters Ant and Dec, comedian Ross Noble and Perrie Edwards from Little Mix. Such talent and illuminati eh.

Linky. Well he looks right pleased with himself.

Looking at google he seems to be a young gun nut with the Postal shooters fave a Plastic Pistol who said something a little frank on social media. Run for the hills, the barbarians are at the gate!!!

No mention of a "pipe bomb" then?
 
It's very scary stuff, the prospect of a school or campus shooter, we have not really been troubled by anything similar since Dunblane. In China they don't even use guns they attack students with knives! America has a pretty robust checking system where kids who are displaying worrying behaviour patterns or social media chatter are challenged as to their intentions before it reaches crisis point! They still have school shooters though!

I'm sure there's more than a few school stabbings in England. I recall a couple at my old Secondary Modern. Boys will be boys.

You've already got a society crawling with expensively paranoid surveillance and pointlessly draconian gun laws. There's no need to monster up the negligible threat of postal shootings in gun-phobic Britain.

Indeed - it was a white male with a ginger beard who was one of those arrested for assaulting people for behaving entirely legally but not in a certain religious way.
