It is not clear how Imran and Rahman planned to get through the fortified gates and armed police officers guarding Downing Street.

Downing Street has become heavily fortified since the Irish Republican Army (IRA) attempted to kill former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 1984.

The MI5, Britain's domestic counter-intelligence agency, said nine terrorist plots had been thwarted in the last 12 months, according to two news reports.

It was not clear on Tuesday night what stage the plot was in or if any suspects have been arrested.

Police say the men who appeared in court Wednesday were arrested last week in raids that took place in London and the city of Birmingham.

Over several weeks, MI5, along with Scotland Yard and West Midlands Police, had been pursuing the case.

The Supreme Court yesterday deferred hearing in the case for February 8, 2018. The court commenced the hearings in the Ayodhya dispute on Tuesday morning.

The plot to assassinate PM Theresa May was revealed to the Cabinet by MI5 head Andrew Parker. According to the report undertaken by David Anderson, British security forces had missed opportunities to thwart the Manchester attack. Four have been successful, including the May attack that killed 22 following an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena.

Imran, from south-east Birmingham, is charged with preparing acts of terrorism.

Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, allegedly had an explosive device in his bag and planned a bomb assault on the prime minister's residence.

Security measures were introduced in the 1970s but were increased in the 1980s as the threat from Irish republican groups grew.

The IRA had previously targeted prime minister Margaret Thatcher at the Conservative conference in Brighton in 1984.
