State prosecutor Mark Carroll said Rahman planned to detonate an improvised explosive device at the Downing Street gates, then, in the ensuing chaos, try to enter the building "with a view to trying to kill the prime minister".

Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, has been remanded in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court.

Earlier Tuesday, Andrew Parker at the meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on the prevention of nine attacks over the a year ago.

However, the Metropolitan Police released a statement earlier today confirming two men were arrested in the United Kingdom last week charged with preparing terrorist attacks.

Imran is accused of allegedly planning to travel overseas for the preparation of acts of terror. He said he was of no fixed abode and said his nationality was "Bangladeshi British".

An alleged Islamist terrorist appeared in court this morning accused of plotting to assassinate the prime minister in a bomb and knife attack on Downing Street. The recording would have given Imran greater credibility with the terrorist organization, the document said.

The court appearence comes a day after an official report said the suicide bombing that killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena in northern England in May could have been thwarted.

Britain has seen five terror attacks this year, which killed 36 people and injured more than 200 others.

"On two separate occasions in the months prior to the attack, intelligence was received by MI5 whose significance was not fully appreciated at the time", the report said.

Parker spoke to members of Theresa May's cabinet about terrorist threats.

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.
