Prime ministers have always been terrorist targets, though Downing Street is now well protected by fortified gates and armed police officers.

Rahman appeared in Westminster Magistrates' Court in central London along with Mohammed Aqib Imran, 21, from the central city of Birmingham, who is accused of trying to join the Islamic State, PA said.

Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, appeared in a London court after he was charged with preparing acts of terrorism.

The plot was revealed to the Cabinet yesterday by Andrew Parker, the head of MI5, who also told ministers that security services have foiled nine terrorist attacks on the United Kingdom in the past year.

The domestic security service has previously said that 13 terror attacks were prevented in the past four years, according to Sky News. He said he was of no fixed abode and said his nationality was "Bangladeshi British".

British police had foiled a plot to assassinate British Prime Minister Theresa May, reported by Sky News on Tuesday. They would then attempt to kill Theresa May armed with a suicide vest, pepper spray and knife in the chaotic aftermath. Imran said he was "Pakistani British".

Both men will appear at London's Old Bailey on December 20. An official report into the attack released on Tuesday found opportunities to thwart it had been missed.

The pair was arrested in London and Birmingham on November 28 by the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command.

May's spokesman said: "The Prime Minister led thanks to the tireless work of staff at MI5 to combat the unprecedented terrorist threat".

"These investigations cover the full range of terrorist activity, from attack planning to activity that supports or facilitates terrorism - but a significant proportion involve potential attack-planning threats". John Major, the prime minister at the time, was inside but not hurt.
