Bomb Plotters Flat



Bomb Plotters Flat

This is the Walthamstow flat that was turned into a bomb factory

Location: 386A Forest Road, Walthamstow

Description: This is the flat where in 2009 three men plotted an atrocity that was intended to eclipse 9/11 by downing cross atlantic planes via explosive devices.

They paid 138,000 for the re-possessed address, and were in the process of converting it into a bomb factory when police struck.

When officers searched the kitchen they found empty bottles of Oasis and Lucozade intended as the containers for liquid bombs to be detonated in mid-air over American cities.

The contents of the bottles had been carefully emptied through tiny circular holes drilled in their base so the bottles' seal caps would not be disturbed.

Secret footage shows Abdulla Ahmed Ali and Tanvir Hussain inside the property preparing the bottles.
