Britain’s youngest terrorist – who plotted to murder police officers in Australia on Anzac Day – can be freed from jail, the Parole Board has ruled.
The 20-year-old, from Blackburn, Lancashire, who can only be identified as RXG, sent encrypted messages instructing an Australian jihadist to launch attacks during a 2015 parade when he was 14.
He was jailed for life in October 2015 after admitting inciting terrorism overseas.
The Parole Board said: “After considering the circumstances of his offending, the progress made while in detention, and the evidence presented at the hearings, the panel was satisfied that RXG was suitable for release.”
Speaking to talkRADIO’s James Whale, security and terrorism expert Will Geddes said the man would be given a chance to rebuild his life.
