Bilal Zaheer Ahmad, of Dunstall Hill, Dunstall, Wolverhampton, is expected to receive a lengthy prison sentence when he comes before a High Court judge at Nottingham Crown Court on Thursday.

The 23-year-old pleaded guilty to soliciting murder, inciting religious hatred and three counts under Section 58 of the Terrorism Act – which covers distributing information about members of the armed forces – on May 13.
