Ciarán Maxwell, from Larne, admitted a series of terror charges ahead of a pre-sentence hearing that began last Wednesday.

On Monday, an Old Bailey judge told Maxwell he must serve a further five years on licence after his release.
The judge said Maxwell was motivated by hostility to the United Kingdom and had betrayed his position in the armed forces.
He told the former lance corporal that the purpose of a pipe bomb – 14 of which were constructed by Maxwell – was “to maim and kill a potential victim”.
